Summer Dance Intensive 2021

Kittiwake Dance Theatre is very excited to once again offer a two-week Summer Dance Intensive from August 23 to September 3, 2021. We are welcoming dancers ages 12 and up who have strong dance training, preferably in ballet or contemporary ballet, to continue their training this summer through this innovative program.

In addition to ballet and contemporary classes, we are adding some culturally diverse classes to expose dancers to new genres. There will be fun, introductory classes in Indigenous dance and Highland dance and as well, we’ll have musical accompaniment for many classes.

We have a fabulous line-up of faculty this year, including:
