It's hard to believe that summer intensive season is almost over! We hope you're learning, growing, having fun and making memories at your intensives this year.
Today, we're sharing seven dancers' favorite summer intensive memories.
Bradley Dunlap, Miami City Ballet
Summer Intensive: Pacific Northwest Ballet
Gaining Confidence as a Male Dancer
"As a 16-year-old-male dancer in America, I often dealt with criticism towards a career in ballet. My time in Seattle that summer offered me a chance to connect with others my age that shared in my goals and aspirations. During those five weeks I was able to grow in confidence and strength as a young man and ballet dancer."
Outside of Class
"It was also so much fun to explore a new city and create new friendships!"
