2016 Summer Requirements for Ballet III, IV and Company
Summer is a time of focused, intensive training, where many skills are gained and refined.

We strongly encourage all Southold Dancers to participate fully in our summer programs.

All company members must attend at least three weeks of Southold summer training. During the Summer Intensives and Workshops, new works will be created and new repertoire will be set for the Arts Everywhere performance on August 6 and the Art Beat performance on August 20. Company students will not be cast in pieces created during the week that they do not attend. In addition, students who miss the registration deadline may miss the opportunity to be cast in the new works and may only be used as covers. The registration deadlines are designed to give our guest choreographers ample time to create original work for our students. They need to know how many students they will be working with.
