Intensive Juniors/ Intensive Adults:

BDS offers intensive programs for dancers who are interested in learning the advanced nuances for dance and performing arts and being a part of our Professional Dance Company. It is designed to give students from ages the opportunity to train and study dance in a professional environment. This program is for students who meet certain aptitude criteria and is structured to advance the technical skills of dancers and improve their overall dance vocabulary.

To qualify for the intensive classes, students are required to partake in general dance classes run by the company for a minimum of 6 - 12 months before they are eligible to audition internally. This is so that dancers can cultivate a strong foundation before building upon their skills. However, once a year we also have auditions open to the general public to expand our student base. Students between the ages of 8 to 12 years can audition for a chance to be one of our Junior Intensive Team.While students over the age of 13 can audition to participate in our Adult Intensive Team. Training does not cease with the intensive program. Students who excel may also be invited to join the Core Dance Company and can pass the knowledge onto other dancers by becoming a Junior Instructor.
