Inlet’s annual Summer Dance Intensive (SDI) is perhaps the best example of the company’s mission of “using dance to further people.” The goal of Inlet’s Summer Dance Intensive is to provide students with a short-term experience of being in a professional company. Typically, students from international & regional locations join local talent to create a diverse ensemble, ages 16 and up, of various races, skill sets, and socioeconomic backgrounds. In addition to receiving professional training in dance techniques and performance, students also discover personal growth, character development, embodied trust, respect, empathy, self-discipline and confidence. Inlet’s SDI will culminate in participants performing on stage alongside the company and the dancers in Inlet’s Trainee & Apprentice Program in two performances for the community at Cain Park Evans Amphitheater (July 30 & 31).
SDI Is being held at Inlet’s new home at the Pivot Center for Art, Dance & Expression located at 2937 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH 44113. With easy access to the highway and over 2,800 square footage of studio space, it’s an ideal, safe, and convenient location with free on-site parking.
Tuition: Half program $550, full program $1250. Scholarships available!
