Level 5 – Dance Summer Intensive & CityDance

June 5, 2023

A two-week dance summer intensive (June 5-16) where Level 5 participants can expect to make considerable progress by participating in rigorous classes in ballet, jumping, turning, and pointe work or jumps for the first part of the day. In the afternoons, this group will combine with CityDance participants and together they will shift to bridge building activities along with challenging classes in West African, Hip-hop, and improvisation genres.

  • Approximate ages 11 – 13 with a minimum of four years of training.
  • Experience in pointe is not required.
  • The intensive fee is included in the annual tuition for New Ballet students. Scholarships apply.
  • Tuition fee for students not currently enrolled with New Ballet: $500.
  • Students applying from outside of New Ballet must audition. Video auditions are accepted.

Summer Intensives are open to all student dancers in the Mid-South. Students applying from outside of New Ballet must audition (scheduled by appointment only), video auditions are accepted. The $25 audition fee will be waived if qualifying for need-based scholarship (on a per case basis). For more information please email us at or call (901) 726-9225.


Invited MSCS students from New Ballet’s Pathway’s programs will participate in a rigorous, and fun day of dance classes spanning several genres. Mornings will consist of classes in styles such as Modern and fundamentals of classical dance technique. The afternoons will be spent in combined classes with the Level 5 intensive participants and will include bridge building sessions, challenging classes in West African and Hip hop genres along with improvisation exercises.

  • Grades 5-7 for New Ballet Pathways’ students in Memphis Shelby County Schools.
  • Free / By invitation only.

Both groups will collaborate to create a new work that will be presented at the Summerdance performance on June 16 at the Halloran Centre for the Performing Arts & Education. All students will offer creative input into the final product. The combination of these intensives has become a cherished milestone for New Ballet dancers. It is the work from which Lil Buck sprang and from which student dancers have come to realize the hard work required of dancers. It’s also a lot of fun!
