The Steps Youth Program Summer Intensives are curated week-long programs offering dancers ages 10-18 the opportunity to opportunity to strengthen technique, and cultivate personal artistry in an exciting, challenging and nurturing environment. Each week-long program features Steps core faculty and guest teachers who will engage the dancers in a variety of styles. Participants are surrounded by a community of like-minded dancers who work with each other to develop friendships and connections to last a lifetime. Mornings start with technique classes, afternoon classes mix styles to provide well-rounded training, and each day ends with repertory workshops in which dancers will learn a piece of choreography from a guest choreographer. For in-person dancers, the week culminates in a special studio performance.
