New York | Los Angeles

Dance Conservatory Summer Intensive for Teens and High School Students

Students in the three-week Dance Conservatory intensive receive individual coaching from our professional dance faculty in solo choreography and technique. In addition to developing and performing group choreography for a professionally shot dance video, each student choreographs and performs a solo dance piece that will be filmed on location in a venue that complements the mood of the student’s performance. Students leave the program with a polished solo performance video to share with friends, send to agents, or submit with high school, college or conservatory applications.

Your music. Your mood. Your moves. Mentor under SOCAPA's master dance choreographers to create a solo choreography piece that reflects your unique style and personality. Showcase your full range of talents through individualized coaching and one-on-one workshops aimed at refining technique and building new skills.
