Interlochen's intermediate summer dance programs offer an encompassing curriculum for serious students in grades 6-9 who wish to study dance in a focused and creative atmosphere. Classes are designed to improve the artistic and technical proficiency of each student while providing a positive environment for the exploration of movement and personal growth.
Classes are taught by an experienced and distinguished professional faculty. Additionally, instructors restage choreography and create original works in a variety of styles that showcase students. Each three week session culminates with a public showing of the repertory pieces and may include a performance in summer showcases such as "Collage" and "Les Préludes."
Dance majors train six hours a day and may choose to attend for three or six weeks. Applicants can select from either a ballet emphasis that includes pointe technique and variations or a modern dance emphasis that includes improvisation and composition. Please note that students in the ballet track will take some courses in modern dance and modern dance students will take courses in ballet.
