Summer Intensive



July 3 – July 28, 2023

Our 2023 Summer Intensive is for intermediate and advanced students, ages 11 – 22. The four-week program will focus on Ballet, Pointe & Variations, and offer supplemental courses in Conditioning, Contemporary, Jazz, Choreography, and Hip Hop. Faculty includes Ballet Idaho artistic staff and guest faculty from San Francisco, New York City, and other distinguished companies and schools. Unique to our Intensive is the ‘Company Experience’, taking place in the 4th week. Replicating a day in a life of a professional dancer, each day students will work with Ballet Idaho company members and artistic staff as they delve into Ballet Idaho Repertory. An informal showcase will take place on Friday, July 28, 2023, highlighting student accomplishments. Our full schedule will be rigorous and rewarding as dancers cultivate technique, strength, and versatility – all while making long-lasting memories. Join us in the City of Trees this July!

In collaboration with Boise State University (BSU), students may reside on BSU’s beautiful campus (just a 10-minute walk to our studios), and enjoy their dining services for breakfast and dinner. Chaperones will be provided for young students in the dorms and will accompany them to and from the studios. With an array of close-by restaurants and cafes in downtown Boise, students will be responsible for their lunches.
