The Summer at Sem Dance Program is excited to offer a rigorous, high-energy, and fun program for the summer of 2023!
In this three-week dance intensive, we will bring the energy, creativity, and personal attention that dancers come to expect from our on-campus dance program. Every day will begin with a technique class followed by pointe, variations, or choreography.
- 3-week combined dance intensive in ballet and contemporary
- Classes in ballet, pointe (not required), variations, modern, jazz, and improvisation
- Individual and one-on-one instruction and correction
- Dancers do not need to be on-pointe to attend camp
The Summer at Sem Creative Arts Dance Program is led by a faculty of professional dancers and choreographers who come from diverse backgrounds and have immeasurable professional experience. The curriculum allows dancers to refine their technique and increase stamina.
Masterclasses offered by guest artists emphasize artistic experience.
An end-of-session Dance Performance will highlight students in our state-of-the-art performance spaces and on our beautiful campus!
