JULY 13 – AUGUST 1
Mon-Fri | 9:15am-4:45pm
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.
