Summer Dance Academy


If you are a retuning Summer Dance Academy participant or a prospective newcomer, I thank you for your interest in the WVU School of Theatre & Dance 2020 Summer Dance Academy (SDA). On behalf of all of us who make SDA happen from year-to-year, I welcome you to our website. This year marks the 9th year for SDA. Each year SDA continues to grow. After a very successful summer last year, we look forward to an exciting and stimulating week of dance also this summer. As in past years, we will be presenting a wide variety of classes in all three of our academies. In keeping with our mission, we will continue to have an exciting lineup of classes taught by gifted and experienced faculty that includes members of the WVU Dance Program and guest artists from far and near. As in past years, we now offer college credits. You may now earn ACCESS, undergraduate or graduate as well as Professional Development (PD) credits for your participation and work in the SDA. Contact us for more information. 

This summer promises to be a week packed with dance and creativity. I invite you to take a moment and read through the following information about each of our three programs. I hope that you will find a program that best suits your dance aspirations and needs. I thank you for visiting our site and please feel free to share it with others who might also be interested in joining us. Contact us if you have any questions or need further assistance with the application process. We look forward to meeting and introducing you to the WVU campus and the Creative Arts Center.
