KSU College of the Arts Summer Dance Intensive

Summer Dance Intensive

This event will open again in the spring of 2019

Registration is closed

The KSU Summer Dance Intensive offers a non-residential program for high school students who want the opportunity to experience technical and artistic growth in an environment that fosters creativity and learning. Students will study with dance professors at KSU, and experience classes in modern, ballet, African, jazz, tap, dance history and kinesiology. Faculty will stage choreographic repertory that will be performed by the students in a concert at the end of the intensive. The Department of Dance at KSU also offers incentive scholarships every year to outstanding high school seniors who attend the intensive.

The cost of the intensive is only $295 and includes lunch each day.
