IUHSSDI  July 10-22, 2022  Dancing from an African Center

Find out what it means to study dance in college! The Indiana University High School Summer Dance Intensive (IUHSSDI), is an immersive experience, carefully designed to give rising and curious 9th – 12th grade student dancers an opportunity to study with university professors and professional guest artists in the environment of a nationally top ranking BFA dance program. This summer, Dancing from an African Center, all classes are rooted in Africanist Dance forms including West African Dance and Drum, Jazz, Tap, House, Afro-Modern, as well as creative practices, repertory, theory, and learning about options for Majoring or Minoring in Dance in College.

All classes are held on the beautiful IU campus and culminate on the final day of the intensive, with a Studio Showcase, held for family and friends.

Supervised 24 hours a day by professional Resident Advisors (RA’s), IUHSSDI participants are housed in their own section of a university residence hall, with male and female students occupying separate floors. Meals are also included in tuition, with each student receiving a meal card for use in one of IU’s many food courts. When students are not in class, RA’s facilitate social activities that tap into the rich variety of campus and community resources as well as downtime to enjoy time with peers.


Rising, curious and committed 9th-12th grade students and recent high school graduates.
