“The end of the dance season feels like the end of the world to me. However, the end of the season brings the summer intensive. There is no experience quite like that of the intensive. Going from learning a dance in five months to learning one in five days is gratifying. Six hours a day might sound like a lot of time to spend dancing. For me however, it feels as if it is six minutes. Time does not exist when you are doing what you love. Everyone there thoroughly wants to be there. Everyone there loves to dance. And that shows through the performances. The summer intensive is an exceptional experience that I look forward to year round.”
