Experience quality professional instruction in Contemporary dance, jazz and ballet technique, composition, improvisation, repertory, and choreography from BYU’s nationally recognized dance faculty and guest instructors.

Each day will include six intense hours of dance training in some of the finest facilities available. Classes are kept small so each participant will receive personal attention and beneficial feedback. Dancers will grasp new dimensions in dance as they view films and attend lectures on injury prevention, dance philosophy, and dance as art. Master classes will be offered on Folk, Hip-Hop, Musical Theatre, and Ballet. Gain experience in Composition and Improvisation, where dancers will be encouraged to create individual original movement. In Repertory, dancers will work with experienced choreographers, learning and performing choreography.

Dancers will have an opportunity to showcase their learned skills and artistry in a closing demonstration performance.

During free time, on-campus participants can relax and enjoy recreation provided by our friendly recreation counselors. Weekend activities include a day at a water park and a day in Salt Lake City. Other activities include swimming, bowling, dances, games, movies, contests, and skits. There will be some free time to explore the beautiful BYU campus, including shopping at the BYU Store and visiting the museums on campus.
