Classes & Gala Performances Requirements


SIBA's Summer Dance Intensive Phoenix 2023

SIBA offers participants the opportunity in the gala performances to present dance works (self-choreographed or choreographed by others) that they have brought with them. The dance works can be any kind of theatrical dance form, such as classical ballet repertoire/variations, modern, contemporary, hip-hop, or jazz dance works.


Participants’ solo performances are subject to audition with the SIBA faculty. Some of the costumes for the shows will be supplied by SIBA.

For Classes

Please bring the dancewear that is necessary and sufficient for the two weeks of dance classes consisting of ballet, contemporary dance, and hip-hop. For example, leotards, tights, leg warmers, ballet slippers, at least 2 pairs of point shoes for female participants, t-shirts, dance pants, shoes for hip-hop dance, and anything else you usually take to your dance classes.
