Calling all young dancers who want to get more out of their dance training this summer! Four different day-long (9am-3:30pm), pre-professional workshops to choose from, each taught by our team of skilled, professional dancers and teachers.
The Intensives – Boost Skills and Broaden Imagination
All artists need input: time to explore, to learn from other artists and to not only sharpen the tools already in their toolbox, but to add more they didn’t know existed! The Préville Dance Academy Summer Intensives offer dancers this crucial input.
All dancers, including high-performance young artists will welcome the opportunity to come back into the studio with other dancers after a long year of online learning. Use this opportunity to connect with other dancers and to improve and deepen your craft.
The Dance Intensives are for participants aged 10-18 years old, and will be held in person, following all COVID-19 health and safety regulations. A few bursaries are available for those who may not otherwise have the means to attend.
It was fantastic! My daughter was challenged and learned new things. She really liked how there were different aspects to it all, learning about dance with your mind, heart and body, not just learning combos or the same typical dance camp stuff. She really enjoyed it!! – Taya’s mom, Carly (2020 intensive participant)
Workshop #1: July 5-16
This special two-week intensive is a unique opportunity for young dancers to immerse themselves in the practice of choreography. Led by Neil Sochasky and Jamie Malysh, dancers will be asked to bring their sense of discovery and adventure!
The Choreographic Intensive will have a performance at the end of the two-week session, a professional video shoot as well as a professional photo shoot.
Check out this original piece created by Jamie and our 2020 Summer Choreographic Intensive workshop dancers. Last year’s workshop was held partly online due to COVID, and included dancers participating from the other side of the country! We invite you to enjoy their piece called, The Journey.
