Why choose MCVD Summer Intensive?
We have great teachers, fun classes and performances. This summer we will additionally bring a focus of Dance Physiology and Careers in the Dance Field. We will share with students how to keep dance in their lives if they choose to pursue another career path.
MCVD’s summer intensive is designed specifically to strengthen dancers’ technique, confidence, creativity, and stage presence.
Various locations around Madison will be used to create a unique and exciting learning experience. Classes such as underwater ballet, auditions 101 and a performance at the Overture Center for the Arts will make lasting impressions on young dancers' training pathways.
Wow everyone back at your studio this fall!
