Does anyone have suggestions for summer ballet intensives that are 3 or 4 weeks long for a 13 year old? We would prefer them to be on the east coast, but anything would be helpful.

Patel Conservatory/Next Generation Ballet in Tampa offers 2, 3, or 5 weeks. 

ABT's intensive in Alabama is 3 weeks, and the Tampa location is 4 weeks.

Bolshoi Ballet Academy's CT program has a 3-week option.

The Rock has 1, 2, 3, 5 & 6 week options I believe.

There are several August intensives in NYC that are 3 weeks, but I don't think any of them have housing if that is a necessity. Manhattan Youth Ballet, French Academie, Fabrice Herrault (Ailey Extension Program), and several others. 

Gelsey Kirkland has a 3 week Junior SI for up to age 13 and another 4 week SI (Classical Repertory) in addition to their longer programs. They do have housing available.

Jeffrey Ballet School's NYC program allows you to choose how many weeks you want to go, at least for the earlier part of the summer. DD went many years ago for just 2 weeks at the start of their program. Not a competitive program for acceptance (they take everyone as far as I know, audition is for placement purposes as well as scholarships).

Carolina Ballet in Raleigh, NC offers 2, 3, or 5 weeks.  My dd did this a number of years ago and it was very good.  Many reviews on BTFD.

Thanks to all for the suggestions. We are looking for housing, and we would prefer New England. Currently, we know she will be auditioning for Kaatsbaan, Nutmeg, and Joffrey. She wants something challenging with lots of dancing so that she will be able to get a lot out of a shorter intensive. One of her ideas, though I am not sure if we could afford it, is to do a week or two of Joffrey and also attend Kaatsbaan or Nutmeg.

Bolshoi in CT has two 3 week sessions that are residential. Highly recommend it. They do a lot of technique, repertoire, etc. Very little down time but my DD loves the social aspect as well as how rigorous it is.

I also highly recommend Bolshoi, my daughter attended this summer (2017) at age 13. She only attended the first 3-week session and came back noticeably stronger.
