A Jazz-tastic Experience for the Serious Dancer!
"I had the most amazing experience on the BOP Summer Intensive Program. Dollie's dedication, knowledge and creative spirit is unsurpassed and I left the intensive more inspired and with more confidence, awareness and love for dance. Can't recommend dancing with BOP highly enough and can only hope that I'll be able to participate again" - Natalia Wise (Australia)

Now in the 8th year, BOP will again present their highly rewarding and exciting Jazz Dance Theatre Summer Program.
This year, BOP will be presenting their 4-DAY Summer Jazz Intensive. An exciting and unique Creative Jazz Dance Theatre Program that offers all participants a chance to be mentored and enlightened working intensively with the BOP Artistic Directors and Jazz artists Dollie Henry (Choreographer/Creative Director) and Paul Jenkins (Composer/Music Producer).
Ignite your inner passion for JAZZ Dance Theatre and further develop your jazz dance technique, skills and performance ability whilst exploring and finding your true potential as a Jazz artist and dancer. All this and more within the highly energised and nurturing environment, that is the BOP Jazz Theatre Company.
The BOP Jazz Summer Intensive Program, takes place in the heart of London at our Company Resident Studios located at Morley College. The BOP Jazz Programs bring together dancers from all over the globe to share in the BOP Jazz community, building life-changing friendships, creative connections and experiences.
The BOP Mission is to share and pass on the artistic and creative aesthetic of the jazz dance art form, bringing a realistic and relevant appreciation and exploration of the many Jazz dance styles and techniques that are at the heart of the Jazz dance genre. Participating Dancers will be taken on the journey of the daily routine and process of a professional Jazz dance company.
Over the 4 days, dance participants will be introduced to the BOP jazz warm-up, jazz dance techniques and styles, Jazz dance improvisation, performance techniques and jazz music appreciation. Each Day a new piece of Jazz theatre choreography and sections of BOP Repertoire will be the creative focus allowing each individual dancer to be part of the choreographic process and provide an organic space for each dancer to put into practice the performance skills learnt.
This is an inspiring and enlightening opportunity for any dancer looking to find your Jazz dance feet within the artistic and creative home of the BOP Company.

Young dancers who have received Scholarships for the BOP Summer Intensive 2018
Last July I was able to enjoy a scholarship to attend the BOP Jazz Summer Intensive. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I had previously attended some fantastic classes with Dollie in Barcelona, but in London it was different. The city, my colleagues, and the caring of Dollie and Paul were wonderful. The BOP Jazz program was very lively, energetic and assisted me in finding my confidence, ability and understanding of expression and musical rhythm and performance.. You learn a lot and although you end up exhausted at the end of the day, you feel as you never want to stop dancing. I will always be grateful for having had the chance to share those dancing days with Dollie and Paul and all the dancers who took part. - Sarah Bonfil (Spain)
