Come and experience three days of classes and workshops, taught by 8&1 Company members and friends. Join some of DFW's most innovative teachers for a weekend filled with inspired choreography, disciplined technique, and a progressive curriculum.

Get ready to bring your passion and energy to work and sweat with 8&1 Dance!

Classes: Each class is designed to celebrate the freedom of movement, the expression of emotion, and the discipline that comes with training and a strong work ethic. Students are encouraged to ask questions and push themselves to new levels. Check out the schedule of classes on Schedule is subject to change.  

This is a judgment free zone! Try something new, make mistakes, and grow as a dancer.

What to Bring: This will be a challenging weekend, so taking care of our bodies is a must. Bring plenty of water and healthy snacks. For yoga, please bring a mat or towel.

Dress Code: We recommend dancers dress in form fitting attire for technique classes as it allows instructors to quickly see and correct students’ alignment and positioning. During warm ups, baggy clothing and excessive jewelry must be removed. For Hip Hop classes, baggy clothing and street shoes are acceptable. Dancers are encouraged to bring appropriate shoes for each genre of dance.

Dress code is not required to participate, however we strongly encourage students wear appropriate attire to ensure a successful experience.

Requirements: Student safety is very important to us! If a student under the age of 18 must miss a class or leave the premises during the blocked intensive hours, we require advanced written notice from a parent or guardian.

We will have 8&1's professional photographer, Sarah Beal, onsite throughout the weekend. All photos can be viewed at her website NO PERSONAL CAMERAS OR VIDEO RECORDERS WILL BE ALLOWED.

After securing attendance for Intensive, please look for two important documents via email, our Photography Release and Release of Liability and Ownership to 8&1 Dance Company. Both release forms must be signed and returned in order to participate in classes. Documents can be scanned and emailed back, or printed and brought to the first day on Friday, Aug. 4.

Open Audition: An (optional) open audition will be held on Sunday, August 6 at 6:00 pm. Audition is open to professionals ages 17+ for our Professional Company and students ages 12+ for our Apprentice Program. Audition is not required for Intensive participants, but open to all.
