Which Summer Intensive to choose? Help!

I got accepted to two summer intensives:

Paul Taylor in NYC for 4 weeks
Joffrey Jazz and Contemporary in NYC for 2 weeks

Has anyone ever been to either of those? If so, what were they like and did you enjoy them? This will be my first summer intensive. I can't afford to go to both so I need to choose... =/

Thanks!

I would choose Joeffry..only because it seems like it would be more diverse. Paul Taylor seems like it might be very one tracked...which wouldnt be a bad thing, it just depends on where you are in your dancing andn life.

I think you might be right. although I do think paul taylor is amazing, I think joffrey might be the best choice for me right now. i'm 16, i'm a junior, and i will major in dance in college.

Do you have the time and the resources to do the 4 weeks? I would think the longer intensive will give you better results. I also recommend checking the number and type of classes both are offering. You may find the the Paul Taylor does have a more versatile schedule. Also look at the faculty. Will you have the same teachers for the whole time or will they be changing every week? The more consistent you can be with one teacher, the better the result. They can actually get to know you and how you work and give better corrections and advice.

Either way - good luck!!

If you choose Joffrey, which intensive are you going to? I am definitely going to the Miami one and I am on the waitlist for NYC.

Which audition did you go to? I went to the New York one. I was so nervous because it was my first audition for an intensive.

I went to the new york audition as well. Remember how we were divided into 2 groups? I was in the group that stayed in the studio we were all in at first. I was nervous too, I'm not very experienced in auditions either! This will be my first summer intensive.

Me too! I doubt you will remember but i was wearing a white shirt that said dance if you want to dance in red letters with black shorts and I was number 809. I was surprised I made it because I messed up sometimes during the choreography.

LOL you're right, I don't remember. You probably wouldn't remember me either. I was 812, with a black leotard and black shorts.
