Three Week Intensive: July 21st – August 8th, 2014
The School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet’s mission is to cultivate the artistic and personal development of our students by providing a supportive environment of dance study to motivate and inspire. The 3-week summer intensive is designed to give serious students an opportunity to train under MCB’s Artistic Director, Karen Mareck Grundy, as well as guest teachers from across the country. Students will enjoy a rigorous schedule, dancing 6-7 hours a day, focusing on ballet and modern technique, supplemented by Pilates, jazz, and contemporary repertoire, culminating with an end-of-program performance.

“The MCB summer intensive was a great experience. Dancing all day gives it the same feel of a large institution, yet you get great one-on-one attention here. I highly recommend it for anyone who aspires to dance or wants to get a feel for dancing professionally.” — Camille Laboile, ballet student 2013
“I appreciated getting to work with great teachers, and I can’t wait till next summer.”—Helena Jordheim, ballet student 2013
