The Lamar University Summer Dance Intensive (LUSDI) is a chance for dance students to experience the life of a collegiate dancer as well as study with well-known names in the professional and collegiate dance industries. Students will make professional connections and lasting friendships in this two-week intensive while growing as a dance artist.
The intensive concludes with a fully produced dance concert, including material learned in the two-week span. Students will experience a professional level rehearsal process including tech and dress rehearsal, preparing them for a professional level concert, in the Lamar University Theatre.
At Lamar University’s Summer Dance Intensive, hosted by the Department of Theatre and Dance, students study ballet, classic contemporary, jazz, aerial silks and hip hop dance among a multi-faceted curriculum taught by LU faculty as well as dance professionals from the surrounding area.
