Since we encourage our advanced students to go away and gain new experiences at other intensives, our advanced intensive is later in the summer and shorter than our intermediate intensive.  Its a great way to be in the best possible shape for your upcoming school year!  

Our intermediate intensive is a great way for dancers of all ages and skill levels to fine tune their technique.  

We have opportunities all summer long for any student spending their summer in Asheville.  Check out all your options!



Combine with other opportunities for a more economical package

Designed to push a dedicated up and coming student to be the very best they can be, aspiring dancers can choose from one to four weeks of our demanding and exciting summer INTENSE-ive.  Students can expect classes in ballet, pointe and classical variations along with a combination of the following - jazz, contemporary, modern, choreography, pilates, yoga, and conditioning classes (depending on the week).  Lunches are spent watching educational films and listening to guest speakers talk about dance history, nutrition, choreographic process etc.  Classes are all day Monday-Friday and a half day on Saturdays. Every Saturday will include an informal performance of the choreography students learned that week.  

The teachers will include members of our exceptional year round faculty as well as current and former Terpsicorps dancers and other dance professionals, who are outstanding in their field, like former NYCB dancer and longtime director of the Atlanta Ballet, Robert Barnett.

Auditions can be scheduled during any existing class times at the Academy.

In order to be eligible to attend the program, students must be accepted.  Please 828-761-1277 or email us to set up a time to come take a class.  Those coming in from out of town are welcome to email us a video by May 15.

Video Audition Requirements:  Barre work including tendu, fondu, développé, grand battement. Center work including adagio, turns, petite allegro, grand allegro.  Girls who are already on pointe should add a pointe combination.  Your video should be 5-10 minutes.
