The Ballet Hispánico Summer Intensive dance residency is a two week experience that is designed to serve the needs of emerging dancers in the Houston community and supports a 360-degree approach to the development of the dancer. Training is rigorous and dynamic in the tradition of Ballet Hispánico’s signature fusion of classical ballet, contemporary and folkloric dance forms. The day-to-day experience is structured around high expectations for presentation, comportment, and engagement. The intensive has been curated to satisfy the cultivation of technique and versatility in the fusion of forms and disciplines, and the education of families and dancers to understand how to navigate the life of a professional dancer. The intensive is split into two sections, a Junior High Intensive (grades 6-8) and a Pre-Professional Intensive (grades 9-12). Class placement will take place the first day to make sure each participant is placed in an appropriate level group. Registration for the 2019 Ballet Hispanico Summer Intensive is OPEN through July 15th!
