DANCE LAB: Summer Intensive


CSU Dance Lab is committed to offering excellent technical and artistic instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our technique package includes two daily classes in a variety of classical and contemporary dance forms.

Our Pre-College Dance Seminar add-on provides mentorship in choreography, writing, and orientation to dance in higher education. Registration is open for dancers age 14+ on a first-come, first-served, basis. Synchronous online options are available.
