Summer Intensives at BMS

Due to popular demand, as part of the Summer Music and Dance Institute, for students ages 9 - 12 we are excited to offer several intensive music and dance courses including: Dance Intensive, Drums Intensive, Hip Hop Intensive, Strings Intensive, Jazz Intensive, and Rock Band Intensive. These courses are tailored specifically to engage older, more experienced students. Rather than sampling a variety of music and dance classes, students have the opportunity to delve deeply into one specific instrument or subject matter.
