Held in Boston, this 5-day program will push dancers creatively and technically in a professional, safe environment. Geared towards intermediate/advance dancers ages 15-24, the intensive provides vigorous training in a nurturing environment with professional company members and educators in the field of dance.
Daily technique classes will be led by Pantos as well as company dancers. Classes will include ballet, contemporary, partnering, improvisation, jazz fusion, modern, and company repertory. In addition to technique classes, senior company members will provide dancers with college and career preparation in small group discussions. Summer intensive students will also have the unique opportunity to work with nutritionist/wellness coach, Donna Morin.
This program gives students the chance to work closely with company directors Pantos and Breton in a rehearsal process. Both will set an original piece on all summer intensive dancers. At the culmination of the intensive, we will open the doors to family and friends for a studio performance. This performance will feature SI participants as well as Pantos Project, who will premiere new original work! This performance has been a highlight for past dancers as well as their guests.
As educators, we understand the importance of adaptive movers in the dance field and encourage versatility. With our full company participating in the intensive alongside our SI students, we are confident dancers will feel supported, encouraged, and inspired. Dancers in attendance will also be considered for a Company Apprentice Position.
"The program provides individual attention, variety of classes, and an inside look into the rehearsal process with artistic director, Kat Pantos. It has been a privilege to be a part of this intensive for the last 5 years and witness the major transformation this week has on individual dancers."
- Carolyn Breton (Rehearsal Director & Company Dancer)
