The Summer Dance Intensive is a three-week program in ballet and modern for advanced high school students who are dedicated, disciplined, and dance with a generosity of spirit. Dancers must have significant prior training in ballet to attend this program. Modern dance experience may be helpful, but is not required.
The program is limited to dancers who are currently in high school/secondary school and who will not graduate before the program begins. Generally, this means that dancers in the program are aged 15-17 and have completed grade 9, 10, or 11. International students are welcome to apply. The program is designed to give young dancers a taste of what a Juilliard dance student's life is all about: refining technique and performance, broadening understanding of various dance styles, experiencing New York City, and making friends from all over the world. The program takes place at The Juilliard School in New York City, and optional on-campus housing is available.
