When all the auditions are done and the regular school year is over, it’s time for Summer Intensive.  Ballet Summer Intensives provide opportunities for dance students to work on their technique and artistry. While our own Southland Ballet Academy offers outstanding professional ballet training year round as well as in our own Summer Intensives and camps, we encourage our students to be exposed to different teaching methods, different dance teachers and most importantly, new experiences.

Attending a Summer Intensive outside of one’s home ballet school provides students with training but also networking opportunities, friendship, and connections as they develop their dance careers.

The following is a list of Southland Ballet Academy students who are attending summer intensives at prestigious schools in the United States and abroad.
