For four hours a day, you will be in the beautiful dance building (virtual tour). You will experience innovative classes in ballet technique, modern, improvisation, composition, jazz, and character dance. You will also learn about anatomy and dance history. The four weeks will culminate in a public showing of the material covered during your time at Interlochen.

While dance students do not take elective classes outside of the dance curriculum, there are many opportunities to enjoy presentations in music, film, theatre, writing and visual arts. You will live and learn with other students from all over the world who share your passion for the arts.


Students should have had at least two years of dance training. Students should be free of injury prior to arrival. Students are expected to be well-groomed. Long hair should be secured in a bun.
