For the past nine days, our team of staff, counselors and faculty has been consumed with making the UCLA Dance/Performing Arts Summer Intensive the best experience possible for our 46 students. This group of youth was truly a special group. Not only were they amazing and beautifully diverse on paper - we had students from China, New Zealand, Canada, Georgia, Florida, Hawaii, Montana, Norcal, Socal, Los Angeles and someone who literally went to high school across the street from UCLA - but they were so engaged throughout the week. Their investment, on a physical, intellectual, emotional and social level, was so rich and made working with them such a pleasure. This photo was taken right after their culmination performance of "I'm Not Just What You See."
