How to prepare for your summer intensive

1. Find the right program for you.

Know your needs: choose a dance camp that will help you grow and get better at what you need, but if you are not sure what you need then choose a camp that will expose you to many dance styles, so you can figure out what moves you!

2. Don't be afraid of the new experiences.

New classmates, new teachers, new dance styles... it might be a challenge but it will all build up to enrich your summer experience and give you life-changing perspectives if you are open to it.

3. Use you current classes to give you a head start.

We know the end of the school year can be overwhelming but the summer will be intense, so use your current classes to prepare for the summer challenge, be at the top of your game and practice learning combinations quickly so you get the most out of it.

4. Be kind to your body.

Its the dancer's most important tool, so stay hydrated, eat well, sleep plenty and we can't stress this enough... stretch! summer intensives are great because you dance all day but you muscles will strain if you don't stretch enough; a small 5 to 10 minute routine every night before bed will do the trick, just be consistent.
