"Thank you for such a positive experience I had these past two weeks. I enjoyed being at the Jacob School of Music studios, learning the repertoire, and having the experience to meet fellow dancers. I feel that I learned very much in a short time thanks to all of the wonderful teachers. The IU program seems to be everything I am looking for and I am very excited to audition this upcoming year."

"Thank you for the wonderful opportunity and experience my daughter was given in the Summer Ballet Intensive. She truly enjoyed the experience. She feels the Intensive has helped her grow and become a stronger dancer, even in the short time she was there. I feel it has broadened her horizon as a dancer and increased her knowledge. I enjoy hearing her talk about her classes and share something new each day she comes home. I want to thank you and your staff for her wonderful experience."

"I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of every correction and word of encouragement that I received while attending this incredible program. Your teaching has enabled me to understand how I need to approach my work both as a student and an artist as well as working towards my true potential.  The lessons I have learned will be carried well beyond this summer and into the years ahead."
