Summer Dance Intensive
JUL 20 - AUG 14 / 2015

For Dancers Ages 14-21


Northwest Dance Project in partnership with Portland State University (PSU) offers students attending our Summer Dance Intensive chaperoned housing at the beautiful Ondine Hall located in downtown Portland. Students attending are not required to live in the dormitories – students may choose to commute from home or other accommodations in Portland.

Students who stay at PSU are monitored by adult chaperones. Chaperones supervise the students during the week and weekends. Our Lincoln Hall Studios are conveniently located within walking distance (two blocks) from Ondine Hall on the Portland State University campus. Those traveling to our Northwest Dance Project Center Studio is not within walking distance. Chaperones manage transportation to and from Northwest Dance Project Center (via TriMet) as well as comings/goings and nighttime room checks. They also run extracurricular activities like field trips, grocery store runs and movie nights. 

Check-in time is 1pm on Sunday JUL 19 / 2015 (earlier check-in must be pre-arranged) and checkout is noon on Saturday AUG 15 / 2015.

Dorm-style accommodations include two-person rooms with private bathroom.

Ondine Hall has spectacular views of Mt. Hood and downtown, internet access (ethernet and wi-fi), spacious meeting areas and an on-campus dining space.

These facilities include card-operated laundry. Laundry cards are available for purchase and reload in the Ondine Hall lobby. The cost is $1.50 to wash and dry.

Ondine Hall provides a standard linen set including sheets, pillow, pillowcase, one blanket and a towel with a weekly laundering service.
