“Hello! I just wanted to say I LOVE this intensive!! You are nurturing artists through opportunities to choreograph. You are educating athletes about their anatomy and how to take care of it. You have an amazing faculty. I couldn’t ask for a better program for Kailey, especially at this time. I am seeing her creativity come out again, and she is excited about improving her skills. You all are so wonderful. Thank you for your program and dedication to fostering artists. Brilliant! I just had to share my love for you all!”

Students who are enrolled during Week 3 through 6 (July 5-July 31) of the Advanced Summer Intensive are invited to perform in CCD’s Summer Moving Project (SMP). This valuable program allows students to learn contemporary choreography and classical repertoire in an intensive rehearsal process with nationally recognized artists. Students enrolled in all 6 weeks of the Advanced Summer Intensive receive 2 weeks of additional rehearsal time and will be cast in additional works for the showcase. This extensive rehearsal process will culminate with the Summer Moving project performance on July 31, 2021.
