Back to Dance Boot-camp is here!

Let's get to know our new Dance Director, Colleen Bialas. 

Join us for a 3-day mini intensive on August 18-20.

This exciting intensive offers dancers an opportunity to brush the dust off your dancing skills as you return from summer break. Each day is crafted to support safety in dance practice and reintegration to movement, with an array of offerings to recondition and celebrate the joy of dancing while connecting students with their Festival Dance community. This mini-intensive is excellent for intermediate, advanced, and adult dancers (ballet level 4 or higher). Dancers should bring a water bottle, snack, and a sack lunch (if applicable to registered class times). Lunch is unsupervised and dancers can choose to leave campus or eat at the University of Idaho Arboretum.

The schedule can be found below. Registration is to be done online. Click the button below to signup.

MOFE auditions will be on Thursday August 20 at  4 PM.
