Artistic Director: Elizabeth Parkinson Director: Kerry Gallagher
July 8-27th
Ages 10 and up
**Must be 10 years old by December 1, 2019**

Join us for three weeks of intensive dance training!

Our summer intensive is a preprofessional program focusing on the fundamentals of ballet, modern, jazz and contemporary dance with a chance to experience hip hop, variations and repertoire. We focus on the whole dancer; beyond technique, we’re interested in pushing dancers to reach their fullest potential. Students will be trained in musicality and phrasing through choreography. Classes are leveled by skill and age, so students receive individual attention. The days are packed with learning technique as well as choreography.  Each week culminates in an informal showing for family and friends.

This year, the FineLine Dance Intensive will be broken up into 6 sessions: 3 ballet sessions and 3 contemporary sessions. Each dancer can mix and match to meet their individual schedules and interests. Below is a guideline for our current FineLine students:

Pre Professional Program: Must take at least 5 sessions **Ages 13 and up**
Entering Ballet Level 4: We recommend at least 4 sessions **Ages 12 and up**
Entering Ballet Leve 3: We recommend at least 3 sessions **Ages 10 and up**

The Ballet Sessions will run from 9am to 12:30pm Monday to Friday

The Contemporary Sessions will run from 1:30-5pm Monday to Friday
