The Sam Houston State University Summer Dance Intensive is designed for students who are committed, disciplined, and seek to become well-versed artists in dance. The two-week program specializes in ballet, modern, and jazz, with additional classes in pilates, yoga, composition, hip-hop, and repertory. We welcome students who are in grades 8-12 (ages 13-19) during the time of their audition.

An exciting line up professional dance teachers come together to teach technique classes and repertory for this two week summer dance intensive held on Sam Houston State University's beautiful campus. All classes are held in SHSU’s acclaimed Gaertner Performing Arts Center located at 815 17th St. Huntsville, TX 77340. The 91,000 square foot building houses entirely new facilities for the Department of Dance Program including a state of the art dance theater, four spacious dance studios, a pilates and conditioning studio, an outdoor performance space, and a Mac Lab.

The culmination of the two-week intensive is an Informal Showing of repertory choreographed by summer faculty members and guest artists, on Friday, June 21, 2019. Parents and friends are invited to attend. Focusing on technique, movement exploration of different genres, and performance skills, the Department of Dance at SHSU delivers a dynamic, holistic, challenging experience that integrates creativity, performance and scholarly pursuits designed to prepare each student for a 21st century career in dance. SDI attendees get an opportunity through this intensive to experience the life of a SHSU dance major. Audition today to be part of this wonderful dance experience.
