Collegiate Summer Intensive

Collegiate Summer Intensive

This program is designed for the mature artist in pursuit of higher education. Dancers will have daily ballet technique classes and will participate in classes focused on ABT repertory, pointe work, jazz, character, modern dance and body conditioning. This is a chance for college-aged dancers to further develop their artistic talents in a challenging and professional environment, while intensively training with world-class ABT faculty.

This two-week program will take place at the ABT Studios in New York City.  The program, headed by Artistic Coordinator Ethan Brown, will include renowned ABT faculty and accompanists.

Dancers must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by the date of enrollment (including single booster if eligible).  A person is considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) or 2 weeks after receipt of the single dose of the Janssen Vaccine.

This program will be offered in-person only.  Students must attend an in-person audition or submit a video audition to be considered.  Virtual auditions will not be offered. Online pre-registration is required for all auditions.
