The Cambrians Summer Intensive is open to advanced students and professionals aged 17-30.



The Cambrians Summer Intensive incorporates multiple techniques taught by members of the company.  We focus on rigorous technical training to create deep understanding  of your individual anatomy, while unlocking the tools for your creativity through show creation and performance experience.

Each day begins with 3 hours of technique with The Cambrians founder, Benjamin Wardell. These daily sessions will focus on a combination of contemporary ballet, advanced floorwork, momentum and inversion training, and improvisation. The remainder of the day consists of technique and 3 hours of repertoire and new creation with other members of The Cambrians.

A maximum of 30 students per session are accepted to the program to ensure individualized attention. We prioritize acceptance of students wishing to attend all 4 weeks, though there is an option to attend for any two consecutive weeks.



The intensive will be held in Mason Hall at The Preston Bradley Center in Uptown. Mason Hall is a beautiful ballroom, and we'll set up that we set our lighting and sprung floor in the space. The address is:

941 West Lawrence Ave

Chicago, IL 60640

Two blocks from Lawrence Redline Station
