What are the best places for summer intensives? I have been looking at lots of websites for summer intensives this summer and have found many that look very good. However, I'm not sure which ones are really good. What do you think?
P.S. I am 12 years old right now but will be 13 over the summer and I am fairly advanced for my age. i have been on pointe for 2 years.

I wouldn't advise anyone to go to Biarritz summer school, we just came back and it was terrible. there were 75 people in one class with absolutely no room at the barre and no corrections from any of the teachers. it's just one big cattle market!
