The IABD "Cutting Edge" Summer Dance Intensive is a three-week (July 2 - 20, 2018) program focusing on cross-disciplinary dance training that is designed to reflect the needs of today’s professional dance world. The program provides a highly focused and extensive pre-professional experience for intermediate and advanced dancers ages 10-17.
Our goal is to provide the highest level of professional training to encourage each student’s fullest technical and artistic development. Emphasis will be placed on daily classes in Contemporary Technique and Ballet while offering exposure to a variety of dance forms to optimize strength, versatility and creativity. Additional weekly classes include Contemporary Repertory with master classes offered in Jazz, Hip Hop and Dance History. All classes and master classes will be taught by IABD Master Teachers and distinguished guest artists.
The Intensive will culminate in a performance presentation at the Dance Institute of Washington. All dancers will have the opportunity to perform repertory choreographed by either our distinguished Master Teachers or professional choreographers selected from our membership.
