REGISTRATION & SIGN IN
On the first day of the intensive, arrive 30 minutes early to the Partridge Dance Center. This will provide you ample time to find parking, check in at our registration table, tour the facilities and get situated. Registration begins at 8:00am (Pre-Pro), 9:30am (Adv/Pro) and 10:30am (Pedagogy).
WELCOME ORIENTATION & PLACEMENT CLASS
The Welcome Class will include a brief orientation, getting-to-know-you icebreakers, and a series of class exercises and BD phrasework. During this class, the faculty will observe dancers and place them into tracks based on technical skill and artistic maturity. This ensures a positive and challenging experience for all of our participants.
WHAT TO BRING
Each day of the summer intensive includes an average of eight hours of technique class and/or rehearsal. To ensure a healthy and productive experience, come prepared with the following items:
- a pair of socks for each day,
- kneepads (optional for modern floorwork),
- ballet shoes,
- a yoga mat (for Pilates and Yoga classes),
- plenty of water and healthy snacks to keep you energized and strong during class, and
- a sack lunch or money to purchase lunch at a local eatery.
Participants are given a 45-minute (Pre-Pro) or 1-hour (Adv/Pro, Pedagogy) lunch break daily. Dancers may bring a sack lunch. There is a refrigerator and microwave on site. A map of local eateries will be provided for those wishing to purchase lunch off campus.
