The Canyon Concert Ballet School Summer Intensive offers a unique 2-week program. Week 1, June 8-13, offers a Contemporary Concentration. Week 2, June 15-20, offers a Ballet Concentration. Today’s dance world demands a versatile dancer. This unique 2 week intensive offers the training today’s aspiring dancers need. While each week may be taken individually, we highly recommend enrolling in both weeks for the full benefits of the intensive.
