WVU 2022 Summer Dance Academy  July 10 - 16 (in person)

Teen Academy July 10-16
Young Academy July 11- 15

If you are a returning Summer Dance Academy participant, supporting parent or guardian, or a prospective newcomer, I thank you for your interest in the WVU School of Theatre & Dance 2022 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 12th year for SDA. The past two years have been challenging due to the pandemic restrictions. Despite those challenges, SDA kept going with a virtual week in 2020 and a limited in-person format last summer.  We all adjusted and made it happen.  Most of all we still had fun.  We are so glad to be back for a full in-person summer program this year.  We look forward to an exciting and stimulating week of dance. As in past years, we will continue to have an exciting lineup of classes taught by gifted and experienced faculty that include members of the WVU Dance Program and guest artists from far and near. 

In keeping with our tradition, 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 our lineup of classes, workshops and activities scheduled for this year’s academy. I hope that you will find a program that best suits your dance aspirations or that of your young dancer. Please feel free to share the site 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.
