We know it’s January, but 2012 is already flying by and if you’re a dancer it is time to start thinking about your summer! You already have your 2012 dance goals, and you don’t want to throw them out the window just because summer vacation rolls around. Don’t get me wrong, summer is a great time to rest and relax your body, but it is also a great time to get a head start on what you know you can improve for the next dance season.
So where do you start? The first thing you need to decide is how long you have for your summer intensive. Intensives can last anywhere from 1 week to 8 weeks! Check out your calendar and decide how much time you want to dedicate to dancing during your summer break.
The next thing you need to decide is where you want to go. Maybe you want to head to New York City for a Broadway intensive, or a professional ballet or modern intensive. Maybe you want to head to LA and check out the jazz and hip hop scene. North Carolina has the American Dance Festival during the summer. Decide if you want your summer intensive to be in a place you have never been to before! If you don’t want to travel outside of your neighborhood, check out the local dance studios in your area. Many dance studios offer summer intensives or even summer classes to keep you in dance shape!
Last you need to decide what style of dance you would like to study. No matter if you’re a ballerina, a modern dancer, or a hip hop fanatic, there is a summer intensive that offers your style! So do your research and decide how you are going to continue reaching your goals this summer!
