Summer Intensive challenges students to strengthen their technique and develop skills for the professional dance world.

Ballet Hispánico’s three-week pre-professional Summer Intensive for intermediate to advanced dancers, challenges students to strengthen their classical technique, as well as experience contemporary forms, and develop professional skills through specialized forums - all through a multicultural lens at America’s leading Latinx dance organization. Auditions are required.

Classes include ballet, classical variations, men's class, partnering, modern, contemporary, flamenco, Ballet Hispánico repertory, and stretch & conditioning. Additional highlights include a Spanish Dance Series with world-class faculty; master classes in hip-hop, salsa, and more; and professional development seminars covering auditions, college programs, and injury prevention.
