Summer Dance Intensive

The Summer Dance Intensive is designed for high school students, in their Junior or Senior year, with an interest in examining dance through multiple lenses. Focus will be on developing creativity, evolving technical and artistic skills, deepening an appreciation and understanding of the art form, and preparing students for future goals in higher education and careers in the dance field.

This two-week summer session will offer an overview of dance, in its various forms, through practice, discussion, and observation. Students will: practice Classical Ballet, Modern Dance, and Jazz Dance techniques, as well as cultural/traditional world dance forms; explore improvisation as a tool for broadening creativity; learn choreography to further develop artistry and performance; create dances as a means of expression and communication; observe, analyze, and reflect on the history of dance and make conjectures for the future. As part of their studies, students will attend various performances around New York City, and also have the opportunity to discuss arts-related and higher education topics with peers and professionals in the dance field. The Summer Dance Intensive at NYU will be a unique opportunity for students to engage in a collegiate experience in one of the most arts-supportive, culturally diverse cities in the world, New York City.
