Summer Bridge Program

Maximizing your summer experience!

Wherever summer may take you, the Otto M. Budig Academy has designed a training bridge to help maximize your summer experience. The Summer Bridge Program is comprised of three week-long series of technique classes aimed at keeping you in peak physical condition. With two weeks in early June, students head to the intensive of their choice with the utmost confidence while reducing the risk of injury before immersing in full days of dance. With a third week in mid-August, students maintain the progress achieved during summer training and head into the fall semester ready to embrace the full potential of the year ahead.

Program Structure

New for Summer 2019!

The Level 1 Summer Bridge Program is designed to help students make successful transitions from our Children’s Division Program into the Main Division Program. As they look ahead to advancement into Main Division Level 1, students begin training two times per week and focus more intently on building strong technical foundations and individual artistry. Through ballet classes and dance conditioning, the Level 1 Summer Bridge Program provides students with a helpful jump start both body and mind for their promotion to Level 1. Students also have opportunity to try Musical Theater Dance, an elective offering for Level 1 students in the fall.
