   Monday – Friday  |  9:15am – 2:30pm   
Our program is suitable for any space –
from tiny rooms to the great outdoors.

This program is a distinct opportunity for dancers of any level to cultivate their technical skills and enrich their understanding and appreciation of the art form. Our program attracts dancers from a large geographic area, both national and international. Primary emphasis is always placed on correct alignment, musicality, and a graded approach to material so that the dancers extend their skills in a balanced way, without injury. At MSB, we prepare dancers to go on in their training in many forms of dance.

    I am so thankful to have a mentor like Paula Shiff. We work really hard in the summer intensive, and it’s a lot of fun. I can see a lot of improvement in myself just in 3 weeks. I can’t wait for the next intensive!

Few places offer the cultural richness and sheer beauty of New England in the summertime. Our region has served as the backdrop and inspiration for countless artists for hundreds of years. To this day, Marblehead and the neighboring North Shore towns of Massachusetts are where many artists, dancers, authors and historians choose to call home. In addition to strolling the many quaint galleries, studios and boutiques in town, students may use their free time to visit some of the following local treasures:
