Advanced Dance Intensive:
For Company: July 24-28, 9:30a-4:30p (bring your own lunch).
Time for some advanced concepts in dance! We will be expanding your variety of knowledge in this well rounded dance intensive. Of course we will offer technique classes in ballet, jazz and tap, a contemporary combo or two, but this dance week is not about choreography. If we get enough enrollment early on we can hire guest teachers alongside your favorite DAB teachers. Some of our possible ideas are modern dance, acro, hip hop, acting, leaps and turns, stretch class, Latin ballroom movement, vocal, yoga, nutrition, African, how to cut music, costume design, improv, Irish dancing, ball massage, counting tap, and potentially field trips for aerial and/or water ballet. Don’t miss this and have to hear the stories later. They are still talking about how fantastic last year’s intensive was! Come make some memories and stretch your mind!
Pricing: $320 for camp; $260 for 2nd or 3rd sibling if 1st sibling enrolled in this camp.


At the Hilton in Memphis this year, July 13-16!!! Classes eligible to participate include Seniors, Juniors, Juniorettes and Pre-Company. A variety of professional dancers, choreographers, and teachers will teach your child and others from a 4-5 state region. It is a very exciting and educational experience. A dinner banquet is included in tuition. Parents may purchase banquet tickets (but do not have to). A competition is held on Friday night in conjunction with this convention, so you may be interested in entering your solo, duet, etc. (there is a studio maximum – first come, first serve). More info coming including prices and deadline. There will also be a banquet opening number that junior members will perform.

-Ballet Forum for ages 12 & up. Take ballet master classes and learn a variation to perform at the banquet. (Must be attending regular convention in order to sign up for Ballet Forum.).
-Intro to Ballet Forum for ages 10-11. Not Old enough for Ballet Forum? This workshop will prepare you for Ballet Forum and include ballet classes and a short variation.
-Note: Any Senior ages 16 + planning on taking entrance exams need to see Mrs. Tracy ASAP (you must take and pass our exams first, then contact SADM to register to take the exams).

But wait, there’s more…

Assistants: We need a few current assistants during dance camp weeks of June 12-15, 5:30-7:30 and July 17-20, 5:30-7:30 and possibly June 26-30, 9:30-4:30. Let us know if interested.

PRIVATE CHOREOGRAPHY: We will be offering solo lessons (Jrs and Srs only) this summer. Cost will be $220 for choreography and 4 hours of instruction. We will be having all participants sign a contract to agree to only use these dances as a student of DAB since this is summer. You will also be required to EITHER polish during the fall OR sign up to use studio space at least three times to practice on your own. This way we can be assured you will not forget choreography. Sign up begins after spring break.

Choreography Workshop: Those in company who are interested in a training workshop for student choreography including how to cut your music, choosing your music and choreographic tips and techniques, please let us know so we can plan it. If you want to start a student choreography piece but have never done so before with DAB, you are required to attend.

Have a great summer! You will be notified by mail about fall registration. If your address has changed this year, please check at the desk to see if we have your new address.
