Summer Intensive 2014 Recap

Sarah Lane, ABT Soloist, instructs students in Level D of the 2014 Summer Intensive.

The 2014 Summer Intensive students have packed up and gone home, leaving the Bolender Center quiet until the Company Dancers return. The five-week-long program culminated in a student showcase on Friday, July 18th. The Summer Intensive 2014 faculty included many dancers from around the country and world; such as, Houston Ballet’s Simon Ball, American Ballet Theatre’s Sarah Lane, and Youth American Grand Prix judge Anna-Marie Holmes.

Likewise, the 100 students who participated in this year’s Summer Intensive came from 18 different states (including California, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin). Half of the students stayed in the dorms and were able to participate in activities around Kansas City on the weekends. They attended a Kansas City Royals game, Kansas City Dance Festival, a Sporting KC match and Starlight Theatre. On the weekdays, the dancers took classes in Pointe, Partnering, Musical Theater, Yoga, Modern, Hip Hop and more!
