4 Weeks Intensive Classes for Dancers

Who is this for? 
Intermediate & Advanced Dancers from 11-25 years

GPA’s Summer Dance Intensive provides multi-disciplinary training in classical ballet technique, pre-pointe & pointe, jazz, modern, tap, in addition to daily dance wellness classes in Rommett Floorbarre, flexibility, yoga & pilates. Weekly intensives are structured around a rigorous leveled curriculum with tailored training for individual growth in order to develop balanced, well-rounded dance artists with solid technical proficiency.  We believe that nurturing expertise and discipline fosters our great appreciation and love for dance. The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little “extra.”

We highly recommend students continue weekly technique class before intensive begins.

GPA's dance training program runs for four weeks, from July 12 - August 6 for ages 11 - 25 years. Students are encourage to register week by week, or for whole session at drop-in rate ( and will be assessed and placed according to level, training up to 7 hours per day. While our priority this summer is to provide as much in-person studio time for you and your dancer as we possibly can, we will continue in our commitment keeping our facility safe and healthy for our families, guided by the local health regulations regarding number of dancers in each studio space.
