The BalletX Summer Intensive was the strongest dance intensive I have ever attended. Every faculty member was passionate - eager to not only teach, but to provide constructive guidance to help students prepare for the professional dance world.
Sara Biren, Summer Intensive 2015

The BalletX Summer Intensive is truly unique in developing dancers who are versatile in adapting to the needs of today's dance world. With incredibly small class sizes and passionate, personable faculty members, the attention given to each and every individual dancer is unparalleled by any other Intensive. The immense diversity in the classes offered and the backgrounds of my fellow peers constantly inspired me to push myself to reach my physical and artistic potential. I left the two-week Intensive having tremendously grown as both a person and an artist.
