The annual Atlanta Ballet summer Intensive Camp is underway at Georgia Southern University. Students must audition to be accepted to the Summer Intensive, and the student dancers go through a rigorous two weeks of instruction, practice and performance. Instructor Heather Conley, who is the Cobb Centre principal for the Atlanta Ballet, said the Intensive requires discipline and dedication, and she sees significant improvement in the technique and artistry of every dancer from when the Intensive begins to its conclusion.
