An ALL Contemporary Dance Summer Intensive
The Joffrey Experience celebrates its 6th year of shaping the contemporary dancer’s artistry through contemporary dance, contemporary ballet, improvisation with live accompaniment and creative process in our Contemporary Dance Summer Intensive.
Dancers will learn valuable professional tools including performance techniques, photography direction and experience in-depth creative processes with New York choreographers. Dancers will experience a professional photo shoot and work with a photographer and the Artistic Director of the Jazz & Contemporary Trainee Program to create professional portfolio looks and images.
Each week will culminate in an on-stage showing at the Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center.
Small class sizes with faculty that are nationally- and internationally-successful artists in performance, choreography and teaching give young dancers the tools they need to dance more fully, with power and artistry.
