TECHNIQUE Intensive PROGRAM

An Elevated Dance Experience

Young Dance Academy, Inc. formed the Technique Intensive (TI) Program to promote competitive dancers with a strong work ethic and enthusiasm. It also encourages discipline, responsibility, and to be supportive of each other in their representation of Young Dance Academy, Inc.

Dancers qualify for the program by showcasing their skill and talent during an annual audition. All members of TI must continue to participate in selected technique classes including, ballet, jazz, and tap during the regular dance school year. 

TECHNIQUE INTENSIVE (TI) PROGRAM AUDITIONS for our 2021-2022 season will be held during our Summer Dance Intensive, Saturday, July 24th – Friday, July 30th. A TI Program informational packet is now available at our front desk by request.
