Class Descriptions

 

Advanced Dance Challenge | Jazz (Two age groups)

Faculty: Surprise Guest Faculty

Adv Dancers Only (Ages 9-12 & 13-18)

Additional $20 payment required 

 

This class will be a 75 minute class with a special twist. The goal of this class is to shift the studio dancer's mind to that of a professional dancer, as it relates to the rehearsal and performance process.

 

Advanced dancers will be given 75 minutes to learn a piece from a professional choreographer (2+ minutes in length) and perform it in a studio setting at the close of the event. 20 dancers max each age group.

 

This becomes a "challenge" for the choreographer as well, because he/she will have to create a piece that has a beginning, middle, and end --  all without having knowledge of the dancers that he/she will be working with.
