    • Rockettes Summer Intensive – Summer Dance Program

    • Summer Dance Intensive with the Rockettes dance company

      The Rockettes Summer Intensive is a dance program designed for advanced dancers who want to train in the Rockettes style. Entering its thirteenth season, this summer dance intensive has produced more than 50 Rockettes.

      The Rockettes reflect individual talent, hard work, athleticism, training, teamwork and dazzling synchronicity whenever they perform. The Rockettes Summer Intensive Dance Program offers aspiring professional dancers the unique opportunity to train with the Rockettes, and a Rockettes Director/Choreographer, learning their world famous precision dance technique. This distinctive style transcends a multitude of dance disciplines, including Jazz, Tap, Musical Theater, Lyrical and the legendary Kick Line.

      The curriculum of this summer dance intensive focuses on original choreography and formations from the Rockettes repertoire that will culminate in a student Showcase to be held in a New York City theater. This opportunity for dancers to connect with the professional dance world and study the world-famous Rockette precision dance technique is invaluable to the dedicated dancer.
