Summer 2024

August 12 – August 17, 2024

An Experience Like No Other!

Introducing THE DANCE ANNEX!  A unique program creating a harmonious bridge between New York City’s vibrancy and the tranquility essential for artistic development. The Dance Annex offers the best of both worlds, allowing advanced dancers, 18 years and older, to quiet the noise of the city while continuing to connect to the heartbeat of the industry. Escape to The Berkshires for this one-of-a-kind dance experience featuring a faculty of highly sought-after, world-renowned teaching artists. Immerse yourself in a 5-day Dance Intensive on the campus of Belvoir Terrace, a beautiful historic mansion nestled in the center of Lenox, Massachusetts, featuring multiple dance studios, air-conditioned theaters, swimming, tennis, and more!  Dive into a world of movement and exploration as you continue to grow and lean into the artist you dream of becoming.

 

Faculty

We, at The Dance Annex, understand the importance of mentorship in shaping the educational journey and the ultimate success of each participant. Our commitment to a quality experience is reflected in our deliberate choice to maintain smaller class sizes. Build and expand your network through student-to-student connections. A smaller student-to-teacher ratio allows for more personalized attention and deeper engagement with the work. Our intimate class sizes and first-name basis interactions promote a sense of belonging and create an environment where students feel seen and valued. Our faculty are not only industry leaders; they are mentors, genuinely invested in your success.
