July is always busy here at the School, and this year was no exception! We started off with our two-week Summer Intensive, welcoming a group of enthusiastic dancers from across Canada, Mexico, and the USA.

Our one-week Teen Intensive brought together a diverse group of dancers ages 12-16 from across Canada for a week of intensive training in technique and repertory.

Here are just some of the things this year’s Summer Intensive participants shared about their experience at the School:

I absolutely loved it! From the teachers, to the beautiful stained glass windows in studio C, to the percussionists, and the way the movement was taught, I knew the next two weeks were going to be the best two weeks of my dance career so far.

I liked that there were classes that I hadn’t tried before. It helped to push me out of my comfort zone!

You learn so much there, and everyone is so supportive! The days are a great length, with just the right amount of breaks, and everyone works so hard. You meet dancers from all over the world, but somehow still feel connected to everyone there, even complete strangers. The school is gorgeous, and I loved dancing in the theatre with the stained glass windows. Would highly recommend to all dancers!!

… it was really fun and that you get really sore after a couple of days, but is totally worth it. It is really informative about the different types of dances and the teachers are really nice. It was an amazing experience.
