2022 Intensives

Immerse yourself in a week of intense dance training with CVDA

Chester Valley Dance Academy offers summer dance intensives for students committed to improving and enhancing their dancing.  Each intensive includes a variety of classes in multiple styles of dance and the region's top faculty.  In addition to our usual goal of providing students exposure to a variety of teachers and styles, we are also tasked with doing this safely and under travel restrictions.  With each challenge comes its own reward, so while we are holding this year's intensive both in-studio and online through Zoom, we are able to enlist talented instructors from around the country that would otherwise been unable to join us.  This week should prove to be a wonderful way to enhance your training.

Three Cohorts, One Week of Dance

Due to studio capacity, we divide our students based on age and ability into three Intensive groups to make the most of their training. This allows the students to receive direct feedback from our guest instructors.
