We are excited to share The new dates for OUR
2019 Summer Dance IntensiveS!
July 2nd, 2019 - July 26th, 2019
"I have attended Elevate for the past two summers and everything about it has been so positive and inspiring.The teachers are all so dedicated and I can tell that they love what they do! Both years I went, I got so many helpful corrections from each teacher which made my dancing improve immensely. At Elevate, we didn't just work on our technique, we worked on self love and confidence. Before the intensive, I struggled with both of those things but after the intensive, I had so much more confidence. This was all because of how supportive the teachers and dancers were. The dancers all cheered each other on and the teachers were our #1 supporters. The friends I have made at Elevate are the ones that will last a lifetime. For me, Elevate is more than a dance intensive, it's my safe space, it's where I have made unforgettable memories and it's where I became the dancer and person I am today."

Our story

Held each year at the beautiful campus of The University of King’s College, Dancers come from all over Nova Scotia and the Maritimes to ELEVATE their minds, bodies and spirits through the art of dance. Founded by Brittney McCarthy, originally from here in the Maritimes, she felt she wanted to offer a training program that would bring the elite dance community together to grow as young artists.

 In just three short years, Elevate Summer Dance Intensive has grown to be a place that dancers thrive and love to be. With educated and experienced instructors, Brittney and her team lead the young artists through an intensive dance program focusing on many genres of dance while advancing their skill sets. Each year, dancers audition and work hard to be accepted into the Elevate family. We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!
