Students will work on defining rhythm and clarity of sound. Students will also learn about the history of tap dance by guest artist Hillary-Marie, who serves as the artistic director of the Jersey Tap Fest.  

Guest artist and Dance Department alumnus Liz Carroll, also a member of the New Jersey Tap Ensemble, will be setting a dance work in the Rhythm Tap style.  

The Tap Intensive will run from July 18 to 22 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) for students ages 10 to 14, at a cost of $325 per child. 

The annual Dance Intensive is a week of technique classes in modern, jazz and ballet.  All dancers will learn basic composition tools and concepts, as well as learning repertory from dance professionals. The camp is an excellent time for students to focus on improving dance technique and refining style of movement.  

A guest artist will be setting a dance work during the week. 

The Dance Intensive will run from July 25 to 29 (9 a.m. – 3 p.m.) for students ages 10 to 14 at a cost of $325 per child.
