This NYC Pre-Professional Summer Ballet Intensive is a boot camp for the advanced ballet dancer. This dance intensive is geared for the advance dancer to be transformed to a professional level. If you want to experience dance as a professional dancer in classical and contemporary ballet then the NYC Pre-Professional Summer Program is for you. Each day will expose you to the top working dance professionals in the industry. You will leave as a better dancer and never forget your dance experience.
