Training Houston's emerging young dancers!

About the Project

The goal of the 2018 Ballet Hispánico Summer Dance Intensive is to deepen SPA’s audience engagement with the local Hispanic and Latino community by providing high-quality dance training that promotes an active lifestyle, wellness, and proper nutrition. 

SPA’s Ballet Hispánico Summer Intensive expands on the traditional dance intensive model to provide a comprehensive learning experience that addresses the importance of health and wellness to young dancers and their families. Instead of focusing on technique or repertory exclusively, students participate in daily forums and self-reflection exercises focusing on self-efficacy, dance training opportunities, education, careers, and their health. Students and parents learn about warm-ups and conditioning; specific exercises to improve flexibility and strength; rehabilitation after strenuous activity; mindfulness techniques; and proper nutrition. The students apply this knowledge as they learn BH repertoire, which they perform at the end of the two-week intensive at a final showcase.
