GSSD is expanding this summer! This means we will be doubling our current square footage for the new season! We may still have a bit of dust around…but we plan on having use of all three new studios for our summer intensives! Each company dancer is required to participate fully in at least one intensive session, but both are encouraged.
Intensive #1 – July 26, 27, 28 – 4:30-7:30pm
Intensive #2 – August 9,10,11 – 4:30-7:30pm
One Intensive – $175
Two Intensives – $300 (discount applies to single dancers, no family discount)
The specific class schedule will be emailed to all dancers who register once the schedule is finalized. Classes will be taught by all your GSSD Faculty and also some guest teachers as well! It’s going to be a ridiculously good time!
CONGRATULATIONS 2015-2016 COMPANY!
