Easter weekend is coming up and for anybody else that would mean binge watching Netflix shows and stuffing their face with chips. But for me, it means I can finally take some time to focus on dance. As somebody with a statistics exam every Friday, I cannot afford to spend time on Dana Alexa’s newest Thursday tutorial but with Easter around the corner, that’s a whole other story. Dancers should take advantage of the weekend vacation and attend as many classes as they can to ensure that they get their training in…at least for this month before AP exams.

Spring dance intensives are like Christmas in the middle of the year. And the lineup for South Florida’s intensives this year is insane.

DanceTown Boca sister studio, DanceTown Miami is hosting an intensive that truly stops dancers in its tracks. It is a varied class schedule with contemporary choreographers Stacey Tookey, Jason Parsons, Rudy Abreu, along with ballroom and ballet instructors such as Francisco Gella and Ivan Mulyavka. Dancers who attend are sure to kickoff their training week with a bang.

Adrenaline Dance studio will also be hosting a star- studded intensive. The schedule features Shaping Sound Company’s Teddy Forance, Nick Lazarinni, and Broadway Dance Center’s Tom Richards among others. Three ballet coaches will also be sharing their knowledge throughout the week.However, space is filling up quickly so purchase your spot soon.

Another option is studio hopping and building your own intensive. If you’ve had a class you’ve always wanted to attempt, now is the time to experiment with different dance styles. Also don’t stick to one dance studio, try to visit a variety. Many studios offer a first class free option or walk-in classes that allow dancers to try out the class without the pressure of committing to a membership. Not only is this option more affordable but it allows you to network and get to know dancers as well as become familiar with your dance community.

Spring is filled with master classes and opportunities for dancers. Therefore, you should resist the urge to marathon 13 Reasons Why and save it as a reward for after dance class.
