Summer Dance Intensive is a three-week** program that provides students with a challenging and rewarding dance experience within a safe and creative community.

**SDI 2021 will be a two week program, given public health reopening guidelines, we have decided to adjust our dates and length to ensure we can conduct our SDI in person, safely!

Students dance from Monday to Friday for approximately 22 hours per week. With an emphasis on versatility and technique, classes include:

  • Ballet Technique
  • Pointe Work
  • Boy’s Work
  • Repertoire
  • Modern
  • Spanish/Flamenco
  • Jazz
  • Hip Hop
  • Conditioning

Attending the Summer Dance Intensive offers both the students and the faculty an opportunity to work together in a studio environment to see if QBSC is the right fit for you.
