Throughout the 3 weeks, the students train in a variety of disciplines including Ballet, Pointe/Pre-Pointe, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Theater Dance, Pilates, and Improvisation, as well as participate in repertory rehearsals to learn choreography from members of our astounding faculty. In addition to the 18+ mandatory classes per week, students are able to take up to 15 additional classes from Peridance's Open Classes, where students will be able to select from a variety of techniques and styles, and dance alongside working New York City professionals!
The Intensive students are split into training groups for classes and repertory rehearsals. Intermediate, Intermediate/Advanced, and Advanced. Placement is determined during a placement audition held on the first day of classes.
During the Intensive, students get to experience the richness of New York City through evening and weekend excursions. Past excursions have included trips to famous NYC landmarks, destinations, and museums like the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center Plaza, Times Square, Central Park, South Street Seaport, SoHo, Chinatown, Coney Island, the MoMA, Guggenheim, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Peridance will also organize a trip to at least one major dance performance at a NYC theater, such as The Joyce Theater or a Broadway Show.
