Summer Dance Intensive
The MCA Summer Dance Intensive, offers comprehensive dance training for intermediate and advanced dancers ages 11 to 22. Auditions are required for acceptance. Boarding and non-boarding camp options available. Students participate in technique and theory courses as well as a final showcase performance. The auditions will include a full ballet class. Students with pointe experience should bring pointe shoes to the audition class. Following the ballet class students may choose to show a prepared jazz, modern, tap, or character dance center combination of at least 64 counts or 16 bars. Showing a prepared piece is optional.
