Hubbard Street Dance Summer Intensive

Those who know me know that dance has been my dream since I was very little. I have danced since before I was 3 years old. I was recently selected among dancers 11 cities to go to Chicago to train with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago for 4 weeks as part of their Summer Intensive. This is a huge honor and a great opportunity for me.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is among the most original forces in contemporary dance. As one of the only professional dance companies to perform year-round, Hubbard Street is continually touring nationwide and internationally. Now in its 35th year, the main company has appeared in celebrated dance venues in 44 states and 19 countries.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's Summer Intensive program, held at Hubbard Street's home in Chicago, offers an intense, one-of-a-kind experience for advanced students with a passion for dance. Students attend daily ballet and modern classes and learn Hubbard Street and Hubbard Street 2 repertory, working with the artistic staff and dancers of the renowned Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.

During the Intensive, I will take class from their choreographers and dancers 5 days a week from 10am-6pm each day. In addition, I will live on my own in a dormitory, being solely responsible for my own food and laundry for the first time.

This experience would not only allow me to improve as an artist but will also prepare me for the extensive track ahead in college where I plan to work toward a BFA in dance performance.

Help me achieve this opportunity of a lifetime! Thank you for all your support.
