Listen to the TCHS dancers below reflect on why participating in summer dance program and summer dance training is important.

Jefferson Konah: "Summer Intensives are a great way for dancers who attend public, private, or academic based school to experience somewhat of a professional dancer's work load and determine if they would want to become a professional. If a dancer has already decided to become a professional then it's, of course, even more important to experience such a rigorous amount of training.​"
Over the summer, Ms. Zwierzynski also completed some professional learning courses to continue to hone her craft. Ms. Zwierzynski attended the Foundation for Education Administration's Arts Integration Workshop with fellow educators from TCHS VPA. Ms. Zwierzynski independently attended the Dance Education Laboratory's LMA/LOD Summer Institute.
