February 9, 2015 by Nicole

The Center for Contemporary Dance is pleased to offer an in-house Summer Intensive Program, designed to advance the artistic and technical skills of intermediate and advanced dancers.

intensiveThe summer intensive is a 3-week program for junior and senior-age dancers and a 2-week program for elementary age students. Students must attend all weeks of a given Intensive Program.

While the program is centered on refining and expanding the dancer’s technique, a final showcase is given to present in-progress works learned during the intensive and creative demonstrations of solid technique.

Here are a few more common questions & answers on the program.

What are the age divisions?
There are 3 age divisions:

  • elementary – ages 8-10
  • junior – ages 11-13
  • senior – ages 14-adult

Elementary Intensive candidates must have at least 3 years of continuous training; Junior and Senior Intensive candidates must have at least 5 years of continuous training.

Is there an audition?
Yes. The required program audition must be completed by June 1, 2015. Candidates will be notified of placement via email within three weeks of the audition.

To audition in-person, the student must attend both an intermediate/advanced modern class and an intermediate/advanced classical ballet class on the current class schedule. Call (407) 695-8366 to schedule audition classes.

What if I can’t audition in person?
Dancers may audition digitally by submitting DVD work samples that demonstrate the candidate’s skills in classical ballet and modern dance. Please see the last page in the handbook for the Digital Audition Form and complete instructions on applying digitally. Digital auditions must be postmarked by June 1, 2015.
