Guest Faculty

Mini-DUBS
(Dancing Under the Big Sky)

A “mini” version of our Dancing Under the Big Sky intensive for younger dancers. MBC’s two-week summer dance intensive aims to provide dancers at MBC’s Ballet C/D level and up, and/or are ready to commit to an intensive, with the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of dance forms, concentrating on technique, artistry, musicality and expression. Outstanding guest faculty will serve to inspire dancers to achieve high standards through this exposure. Intensive schedules will include repertory rehearsals with guest artists and Montana Ballet staff, which will culminate in a special performance during Sweet Pea Festival of the Arts weekend.
