Monday, June 28 to Friday, July 23, 2021*

*No classes Monday, July 5
Towson Campus and Downtown Campus

This challenging half-day program for all students – from beginners to serious upper-level students – provides a strong focus on technique classes: 

  • Ballet technique (for all levels)
  • Pointe/Variations/Men’s classes
    (only for upper-level students who demonstrate technical readiness)
  • Contemporary Dance technique (all levels)

Technique classes are creatively balanced by additional classes in other dance forms (for example, Spanish dance, West African Dance) and enrichment classes such as stretch/conditioning and dance history. Classes in other dance forms change weekly so students are challenged to expand their movement skills.

Students new to Peabody Preparatory Dance, ages 8-18, with previous dance training must complete a placement class to determine which level is appropriate. (Beginners, and all 7-year-old students – including those with up to four years of previous dance training – may register for Level A and do not need a placement class.) Current Preparatory Dance students may register without completing a placement class.

Placement Class Information

All new students who are not currently enrolled in Peabody’s year long program must sign up for a placement class prior to registration for the Summer Dance Intensive. The placement class enrollment will request information about your child’s current training in ballet and contemporary/modern dance to facilitate accurate placement within the program. Information coming soon

If you have additional questions, please contact the Preparatory Dance Office: prepdance@jhu.edu or 667-208-6648.

Levels are subject to change based on the needs of the Summer Dance Intensive students each year. Students are placed in levels that will best enable them to improve their ballet technique.

All students are strongly encouraged to attend all four weeks of the Summer Dance Intensive. This summer, students may register for any number of the four weeks, and the selected weeks do not need to be continuous. Please contact the Preparatory Dance Office if you have questions about the registration options for your child.

Space will be limited in the program to provide opportunities for individual feedback. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Some levels or weeks may fill quickly.
