A summer workshop is a rare chance for dancers (ages 3-20) to focus on dance, uninterrupted by competing demands of school and other activities. Warm days rich in dance, music, choreography, stage craft classes and the finer understanding of the body that comes from studying anatomy, physiology and nutrition combine for a powerful experience – even for the youngest students!. Students learn about costume design, stage-craft, dance history, and experiment with their own creative ideas as well. They also enjoy seeing and discussing video recordings of classic and new dance performances that connect our students with dancers worldwide.
Main Division students also take classes in classical ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, repertoire, and other character dance, learn advanced stage makeup and present an end-of-workshop performance in the studio theater. And when it's time for a break, dancers of all ages relax with picnics and massage workshops. It's a perfect way to make new friends, work hard on skills, learn something new and make summer count for something spectacular.
