Inlet's Summer Dance Intensive 2022

Wednesday, June 29 - 9:00 AM

June 29th, 2022 - July 30th, 2022

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 (ages 16+) 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, 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 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio (July 29 & 30).
In addition to daily classes in Erick Hawkins based release technique, collaborative performance improvisation, and non-traditional partnering, this year's SDI will feature West African Dance Classes by Talise Campbell of Djapo Cultural Arts Institute.
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.
