Summer Intensive Info

The FMBallet Summer Intensive takes place for 3-weeks each summer. We bring in sought after master instructors in Ballet, Pointe, Contemporary, and specialty dance styles.

Dancer's accepted into our summer program and accept the three week program will dance Monday through Thursday 8:30am - 4:30pm and Fridays from 8:30am - 12:30pm at Gasper's School of Dance's Downtown Studio (Home of the FMBallet).

Those enrolled and accepted who take an individual week will be dance Monday through Thursday 8:30am - 4:30pm.

Friday's will be focused on choreography, performance, and repertoire to help with choreography retention, as well as overall movement. Great skills for auditions and learning of choreography, improv and skills dancers may use throughout their season.

They will train in styles of ballet, pointe / pre-pointe, contemporary, jazz, tap, and more. We find that a well rounded dancer is a stronger dancer.

Dancers will need to bring a packed lunch each day. They will have a 30 minute lunch break scheduled into their daily schedule.

To keep hydrated, we suggest bringing a water bottle.
