The Carr Center is proud to present the fifth year of our Summer Dance Intensive in partnership with the acclaimed Debbie Allen and the Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA).

As a Resident Artist of the Carr Center, Debbie Allen brings her world class faculty from Los Angeles and New York to Detroit, where they teach student dancers from across the metropolitan area in a comprehensive 2 week early professional dance and musical theatre experience.

Dancers, ages 8–21, will receive training in the following dance forms:

  • Ballet 
  • Modern 
  • Tap
  • Jazz,
  • African
  • Dunham 
  • Hip Hop 

This summer will also be the second year we are offering a concurrent 2 week Musical Theatre Intensive also in partnership with DADA.

The intensives will run Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with a final performance on July 23 in The Ford Theatre at Detroit School of Arts.

All students must audition to participate in the Intensive. Auditions for the Intensives will be held this Spring so stay tuned for details
