Urbanity Dance Summer Intensive

Urbanity Dance is traveling around the United States auditioning students for their exclusive summer intensive. Every year ninety hand-selected students are chosen for a unique hands-on Contemporary Intensive at Urbanity Dance. From Monday through Friday, dancers take 6-8 hours of classes ranging from contemporary, modern, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, partnering, choreography, leaps/turns, improvisation and career counseling. At the end of the summer intensive, it will culminate in a special performance from everything that was absorbed from students throughout the intensive.

The Summer Intensive is divided into two sections; Urbaniteen, which includes dancers ages 11-15 and the Summer Intensive, which includes dancers age 16-23. The 2015 program will run from July 27 through August 14. The 2015 Faculty includes Besti Graves, Jackie Nowicki, Ellenore Scott, Jamie Lovell, Ebony Williams, Jaclyn K .Walsh, John Selya, Paul Craig, Michelle Chasse, Sandi Duncan, Oliver Besson and Teddy Forance.

I went to the January 31st Boston Audition and I met with dancer that was auditioning and she expressed great satisfaction. She said, โ€œThis audition is much more laid back than most auditions. I feel like Iโ€™m in a class; I feel much more comfortable and less nervous.

Here are some photos from the audition.
