SUMMER INTENSIVE

2019

Summer Intensive 2019

Session I: Kid’s Dance Camp June 17-28 2019

Session II: Advanced Summer Intensive July 1-19 2019

Dancers will enjoy personalized attention at Central Oklahoma Dance Academy’s first Summer Intensive designed for intermediate and advanced pre-professional dancers. While most ballet summer intensive programs are designed to accommodate a large influx of dancers, our three week intensives are designed for the students to receive individualized, intense and specific instruction in a more intimate setting. Ballet Master Catie Tramel and Creative Director Sterlin Mosley will guide students through a holistic and technique-heavy course constructed for the aspiring professional dancer.

Our intensive offers the highest caliber of instruction and a diverse offering of dance styles to allow students to develop a well rounded dance vocabulary. Students attend class from 8:00am-12:00pm (8:00pm-1:30pm for Advanced students) Monday-Friday with optional classes offered in the evenings and on Saturday mornings. Our Summer Intensive will feature workshops from physical therapists, conditioning coaches and offer students tools to improve not only their ballet, modern and contemporary dance technique and repertoire but also develop students knowledge of nutrition, stress management, audition preparation and ballet pantomime. The Advanced intensive will culminate in a recital performance for friends and parents.
