Intensive Summer Training for the Serious Student of Dance

PDT’s Conservatory Summer Intensive program is structured to advance the technical, artistic, and performance skills of dancers by exposing them to a wide variety of dance styles, repertory workshops, and performance opportunities.  


Schedule & Curriculum

Schedule will vary depending on the level of the student.  Students in levels Basic 1 & Basic 2 are two or four times per week Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9 am and 12 pm.  Twice per week these two levels are combined.  Students in levels Basic 3 and above attend classes Monday through Thursday between 9 am and 4pm and 9 am to 2:30 pm on Fridays.  Our curriculum includes technique, pointe for girls, pas de deux, variations, contemporary, composition, jazz, and hip-hop. Additional classes may include Bollywood, Pilates, yoga, and special workshops.  Schedule is subject to enrollment.  


Faculty & Guest Artist

Classes are taught by our highly qualified faculty, who give encouragement, support, and individual attention at all students, while assisting in the development of the mind/body connection, invoking discipline and a deepened self-awareness.  Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from and work with special guest artists.
