This one-week dance program centers on ballet and modern as primary studio techniques. In addition, young dancers will spend time in a dance composition class exploring the multiple facets of creating new work. Students will take two daily dance classes (ballet and modern) and will spend time each day in composition workshops learning and exploring choreographic tools to support explorations of their own expressive and movement ideas (new dance).
