Summer Intensive

The Ballet West Academy and the University of Utah, Department of Ballet will combine efforts this summer to offer a unique experience unlike any other. This summer intensive offers an intensive, pre-professional ballet training program that has captured the attention of up-and-coming dancers internationally. Designed for serious students ages 12-26, who desire individualized instruction, the Summer Intensive guides them in their ballet technical skills as well as other dance forms that compliment a ballet artist.

Unique to this year’s program is the ability to earn college credits for qualified college students*, as well as the opportunity for advanced dancers to be considered as candidates for Ballet West II, Ballet West second company. The program is held at the University of Utah’s beautiful Alice Sheets Marriott Center for Dance and offers unparalleled training by a distinguished staff of Ballet West Academy Instructors, University of Utah instructors, Ballet West Artistic Staff (featuring Artistic Director Adam Sklute), Ballet West dancers and well-known in-state and out-of-state guest teachers.

In addition, dorm students enjoy an array of fun weekend activities ranging from swimming to shopping to sightseeing. Our reputation for excellence is reflected in the large number of students who apply and are accepted each year.
