The OU School of Dance Summer Intensive provides a unique opportunity for professional and pre-professional dancers to gain comprehensive experience through high level training, with a focus on ballet technique, modern dance, and choreography within a top university dance program. For the first time, the OU Summer Intensive Program will be unified with the OU School of Dance’s summer session. This will allow all students to work closely together, create enduring connections, and perform alongside each other in a lavish final performance.
The Summer Intensive is now four weeks long, enabling each student to grow as a dancer through individual coaching in our purposefully small classes. The School of Dance offers supervised housing accommodations on the OU Norman campus as well as a commuter student option. Summer Intensive faculty will include OU’s School of Dance professors, plus guest faculty from schools and companies such as Boston Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Oklahoma City Ballet, and New York.
The University of Oklahoma Summer Intensive Dance Program will help students get familiar with the rigorous training at OU, our state-of-the-art facilities, all on one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. This is an experience that can be particularly inspiring for those who want to dance professionally and who are planning on earning their B.F.A. or M.F.A. degree. The 2020 Summer Intensive will put each student first, with the goal of helping them excel and successfully navigate all of the challenges and expectations of today’s complex dance world.
Students will conclude their Summer Intensive experience with an on-stage performance at the Donald W. Reynolds Performing Arts Center in OU’s historic Holmberg Hall, featuring classical, modern and contemporary repertory as well as new works by guest faculty.
Tuition $1,550 / Housing and Meal Plan $1,940
