Summer Intensives

About The Program


Sydney Australia: Dates TBA
New York City: May 31 – Aug 6, 2021
Florence, Italy: July 19 – July 30, 2021

Our summer intensive in NYC offers two concentrations: ballet and contemporary, with no pointe work required for the contemporary program. Classes will include ballet, modern, pointe, variations, contemporary, improvisation, partnering (ballet and contemporary), conditioning, wellness, and dance history. Dancers will work with established choreographers that have danced and choreographed for major companies around the world. Both concentrations will have daily technique classes followed by rehearsals with choreographers. Intermediate through professional levels, ages: 12-25.

Our Summer Intensives are the perfect way for dancers to challenge themselves both technically and artistically, while experiencing the vibrancy of the arts in each location. Both New York City and Florence, Italy are centers of dance, art, and culture that enhance our dancers’ summer experience and broaden their perspectives as artists. Designed for students and young professionals ages 12 – 25, our summer intensives challenge dancers through the rigorous development of technique, exploring new ways of moving, learning history, creating new work, and by introducing them to the repertory of Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey.

Students in all programs will take classes taught by our NYDP Summer Faculty, Monday through Friday each week. We offer flexible weeks programs where accepted dancers can choose to attend a minimum of one week up to the entire duration of the program, in both cities. Acceptance to our Summer Intensives is by audition only.
