Summer Intensive

SUMMER INTENSIVE

BIA SUMMER INTENSIVE 

July 11 – July 29, 2022 

Our 2022 Summer Intensive is for intermediate and advanced students, ages 11 – 18. The three-week program will focus on Ballet, Pointe & Variations, and offer supplemental courses in Conditioning, Contemporary, Jazz, Character, Choreography, and Hip Hop. Faculty includes Ballet Idaho artistic staff as well as guest faculty from distinguished companies and schools. Unique to our Intensive is the student Choreographic Initiative, where students will delve into the choreographic process and experiment with compositional tools to create dance. 

An informal showcase will take place on Friday, July 29, 2022 in the early afternoon, highlighting student accomplishments and creativity. Our full schedule promises to be both rigorous and rewarding. Dancers will cultivate their ballet technique and versatility, develop strength and self-efficacy, all while making memories that last a lifetime. We hope you join us in the City of Trees this summer! 

Accommodations

In collaboration with Boise State University (BSU), students may choose to reside in dorms and enjoy BSU’s dining hall services for breakfast and dinner. BSU dorms are within walking distance to Ballet Idaho studios. Chaperones will escort younger students to and from the dorms. With an array of close-by restaurants and cafes in downtown Boise, students will be responsible for their lunches. 

*Hotel and Host Family Stays may be other options for students.
