Intensives and workshops offer immersive dance programs for students wanting to focus on and hone their dance skills in various styles and modes.

Summer 2023 will be a summer to remember as HPSD takes on its premiere of Disney’s The Lion King Jr.
in collaboration with Ayodele Drum and Dance.
Our intensives for young dancers age (8-11) and pre-professional dancers (ages 11-18) will include Ballet, Modern, Jazz/Musical Theater, Breaking/Hip Hop and West African Dance. There are 15 lead roles as well as multiple ensemble (corps) roles. Dancers will stretch their boundaries and expand their talents into the art of singing and acting to create this memorable musical theater experience in a safe inclusive environment.
Whatever your talent may be: a tap dancing Timon, a Breaking Wildebeest, a graceful Balletic Antelope or a Wise African spirit animal, there is a place for every dance interest and talent. Build strength, technique, stretch your comfort zone and make art with us this summer!
(Dancers wishing to participate in The Lion King Jr performance workshop must sign up for the entire 5 week program. Some excused absences will be permitted)
