ANC Dance Intensive 

August 21-25, 2023

ANC Dance Intensive is the perfect way to get excited and prepared for dancing during the school year after a summer off.  

The co-ed camp is open to students entering 7th through 12th grades and is held in the Asplundh Field House dance studio and The Mitchell Performing Arts Center. Dancers of all levels, including beginners, are welcome to participate. 

The ANC Dance Team teachers will lead technique-based warm-ups along with teaching two dances which the participants will perform for an audience of family and friends at The Mitchell Performing Arts Center on the last day of the camp. There will be special guest sessions in which students will be exposed to a new and different style of dance and will have the opportunity to learn from a new teacher.

General Information:  

Cost: $125 per person. Payment is due by the first day of the intensive. Payment can be made online via the link above. Cash or check are also accepted and can be brought with the student on the first day. Checks should be made payable to "Academy of the New Church" with a note indicating Dance Intensive and the student's name.

Registration: The registration deadline is August 7th. For more information please email sarah.gladish@ancss.org.
