Summer Intensive

Group classes are continuing remotely through the summer months. This year Diploma students are participating in a distance learning curriculum in place of the traditional five-week Summer Intensive. Current East Bay Center students are invited to extend their Center classes into the summer, free of cost. Center families can contact Kwesi: kwesi@eastbaycenter.org for more information.


The Diploma Program's Summer Intensive is an annual 5-week summer program for all Young Artist Diploma students. One hundred and thirty teens take class Monday through Friday from 8:30AM- 4:30PM. The Summer Intensive requires cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary training, as well as technical instruction in music, dance, and contemporary theater forms. The Summer Intensive culminates with three evenings of presentations that highlight what the students have learned together in just five weeks. Catch a glimpse of our students in action with our Summer Intensive Highlights video.
