Project Pinx Summer Intensive is the ultimate training, coaching and mentoring dance experience aimed at the young dancer who is capable of crossing the threshold from beginning to intermediate student, intermediate to advanced student and from advanced student to professional dancer. Today, the world of dance demands that performers not only exhibit beautiful and accomplished technique, but also a strong artistic identity.
Held at Pinx Academy of Dance, the summer intensive program develops structures and builds the technique, musicality, creativity and artistry of young dancers allowing them to grow in ability and self-confidence. A close working partnership between student and teacher is perhaps, the most important aspect of the program. Each dancer will receive intensive work to improve line and placement, technique and strength. In addition to traditional classical ballet, students gain experience in a number of diverse dance styles including Dunham Technique, Contemporary Modern, Jazz, West African, Hip Hop, Majorette, Musical Theater, Yoga, Tap, Acrobatics, African Drumming & Choreography. The intensive will conclude with several performance showcases throughout the metropolitan area paired with a grand showcase.
Our faculty offers students a vast range of professional experience coupled with in-depth knowledge and understanding of dance pedagogy. Each instructor is well versed in their discipline and training. Their enthusiasm and skill as teachers/mentors combined with their love of dance offer students a rich and rewarding experience within a safe and nurturing environment. The faculty shares with students their knowledge of all aspects of the dance world.
