Summer Training and MasterclassesA critical element of ProArteDanza's artistic vision is continuous investment in the next generation of contemporary dancers.
ProArteDanza's Summer Intensive Program (SIP) was established in 2007 for dancers 19+ years old (Apprentice level) and was designed to develop dancers who are deeply fluent in a wide variety of dance vocabularies. The program was expanded in 2015 to include a training stream for 15-18 year olds (Aspirante level) and then in 2017, a 12-14 year old (Jr Aspirante) program was added. The majority of ProArteDanza's company dancers are former students of SIP. Watch clips from SIP 2018 !
In 2019, SIP will run from July 29-August 25 with 4 weeks of teaching for the Apprentice, Aspirante and Jr Aspirante streams. The program concludes with four public performances August 22-25.
