Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is preparing for our 3rd annual Mini-Summer Dance Intensive for younger dancers aged 9+. This two week day camp will run Monday- Friday, June 18-29, 9am-4pm and is perfect for male and female dancers who have some dance experience under their belt, but are ready to take their dancing to the next level!

Each day dancers will warm up in a ballet class, build foot and ankle strength in pre-pointe, dabble in different theory classes such as dance history, composition (choreography), costume design, and theatre, rounding out their dance experience with a “genre of the day” class, including jazz, modern, musical theatre and hip hop. Each day will end with a rehearsal for a final showcase that will be in our Academy Theatre for friends and family at the completion of camp. New this year we will have special Guest Artist, Natasha Posey joining us from Milwaukee where she is on faculty at both Milwaukee Ballet and Danceworks to instruct ballet for the entire first week. In addition to Posey, dancers will get to work with some of the best dance instructors who live in Winona and La Crosse area including; Jessica Dienger, Sharon Mansur, Rachel Nehring, Tammy Schmidt, and Jennifer TeBeest.
