Peridance’s BLUEPRINT Summer Intensive 

An unparalleled 2-week summer intensive
August 7-20, 2017

BLUEPRINT is designed to expose students to the best instructors in both the ballet and contemporary fields from New York City and around the world. It is designed to encourage the formation of important industry relationships that will help them to develop more career opportunities and enrich their current dance network. 

Peridance Capezio Center brings this unique and exciting Intensive experience to pre-professional Ballet and Contemporary dancers, ages 17-22.

Project Statement:

BLUEPRINT is bridging the gap between conservatory ballet technique and the innovation of the current contemporary dance scene. It brings dancers face to face with current influencial dance educators and immerses them into a true professional work environment. 

Dancers for BLUEPRINT are selected during auditions held in NYC and around the world between November and March each year. During their time in NYC, these emerging artists polish their technique, work closely with prestigious current contemporary choreographers from NYC and abroad, and develop their own voice as an artist. 

At the end of the two weeks, dancers get to perform the repertory learned in the intensive on a professional New York City stage. The audience of this invitation only performance include families of the dancers, many of the choreographers who set work, as well as many other artists and choreographers in the NYC area, providing opportunity to secure future employment with working industry professionals
