The Elisa Monte Dance Summer Series is a unique retreat-style summer intensive for the pre-professional dancer. The mission of EMDSS is to provide a positive and inspiring environment for the serious dancer hoping to embark on a career in the field. Held in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, EMDSS provides strong and efficient training in ballet, modern, contemporary, and company repertory, emphasizing the company's individualized strengthening and conditioning methods. In addition to seminars, talk backs and Q&A's, participants will experience private performances by Elisa Monte Dance. Most importantly, the dancers will receive mentorship by Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher, as well as EMD company members. EMDSS is excited to offer possible company apprentice positions for select advanced dancer(s) following completion of the intensive.
