The Intensive

The hottest dance intensive in the nation is, well… Intense. SHOCK is the original one-day dance intensive packed full of exciting classes from the industry’s top teachers and choreographers. Although it’s only one day, you pay half the cost of a more expensive (and less cool) 2 day convention, but get almost the same number of classes all rolled into 1 day. Now that’s INTENSE.

Not to mention the quality of instruction, no competition stress, and Shock’s insanely talented, world famous faculty... Is there any other choice?

Teachers/Asst. Teachers

You may participate in all classes; Mini, Junior, Teen*, Senior, and your own teacher room.
