Summer Intensive 2023
Behind the Red Hood

Get ready for an incredible new performance from Summer Intensive 2023. While studying various dance forms, dancers will learn dances to create an interactive story with a Little Red Riding Hood theme. The performance could be different each time it is performed! Audience members will decide what Little Red’s mother packs in her basket, determining whether Little Red has treats for the deer or the wolves. The audience will also decide if the hunters should respond to noises in the forest or keep their axes swinging. Lastly, participants will decide what Little Red’s Grandmother does when she hears a knock on the door. Characters may or may not respond the way the traditional story dictates and dancers will have some say in choreography when created during Summer Intensive. We can't wait to create this brand new show with you! 

Intensive: July 10th-21st

Alternate auditions are still available for only $20 through June 15th

When we were choosing a new studio for Lila last year we were looking for someplace she could get a variety of classes and performance opportunities and quality instruction even though she is a recreational dancer. I felt she had excellent opportunities as a new student.
