Summer study can be an important, even crucial aspect of an intermediate or advanced student's training. Ballet 5:8's Summer Intensive is structured to provide dancers with the serious classes and training hours needed to not just "keep up" technique, but to make gains, expand artistry, and engage with many different styles of dance and choreography along the way.
The Pre-Professional Program is a comprehensive training school for intermediate and advanced dancers. The program is designed to provide students with the needed classical training for students to enter careers in professional dance performance, be accepted to college level dance programs, and pursue a variety of career and ministry opportunities in dance-related fields.
