" I remember hearing the first day, 'I'm (Faculty) going to treat you like a professional so you dance like a professional.' I think that pretty much sums up this program the best way."

It is a five week program consisting of Ballet West Academy Summer Intensive’s first three week session followed by a two week Choreographic Workshop, culminating in a world premiere performance at the Gallivan Center, downtown Salt Lake City, on Friday, July 19th 2019.  Ballet West First Soloist, Allison DeBona, and Ballet West Principal, Rex Tilton, are the Directors of the artÉmotion Summer Intensive and lead the two week Choreographic Workshop.  This year, Ballet West Principal Artist, Emily Adams and choreographer Quinn Wharton, will be joining Rex Tilton as the Workshop’s three choreographers.
