Valencia College Summer Dance Institute

Due to the fact that the college will be closed to students for the summer semester, we are making the difficult decision to cancel our annual Valencia Summer Dance Institute and Summer Dance Repertory Concert for 2020. We hope to see everyone next summer!

A staple at Valencia College since 2000, this four-week summer program is designed for 20-25 students in grades 9 – 12. Focusing on the development of students' processing skills and meaningful demonstration of learning, the program's multidisciplinary approach provides students with authentic learning tasks and environments, infused technology and enables continuous learning, assessment and reflection of interrelated disciplines.

With three components—hands-on, field and classroom instruction—students will gain a wide range of experience, such as:

  • Participate in the development of choreographic, technical and performance skills
  • Gain an understanding of cooperative learning
  • Learn essential communication skills
  • Work with various artists in the field of dance
  • Demonstrate new acquired skills

The program is also geared toward the recruitment and retention of dancers for future admittance to Valencia College Associate in Arts in Dance Performance Program.


Cost of four-week program: $200
