The Conservatory Dance Intensive

dance students performing in front of outdoor sculpture

June 10-15, 2019

Dancers (ages 12 to college) will be challenged technically and artistically through a variety of classes taught by Southeast dance faculty and other professional artists. In addition to daily ballet class, students will study modern and jazz techniques and have the opportunity to experience additional classes including pointe, aerial arts, improvisation, and hip-hop. Daily lunch discussions will explore topics important to aspiring dancers such as nutrition, injury prevention and treatment, and the life of a professional dancer. The Conservatory intensive offers individualized dance instruction and will introduce young dancers to numerous different dance styles improving their technique and performance abilities. An informal concert showcase of newly created dance works will take place at the end of the week as part of the River Campus Summer Arts Festival for parents and friends to enjoy. Students about to enter their senior year in high school, recently completed their senior year in high school, or students wishing to transfer to Southeast Missouri State University may use the intensive as their audition to the BFA dance program. **A minimum of 12 dancers must be enrolled in order for the intensive to be held.**
