Train with members of New Dialect and participate in a creative process with artistic director, Banning Bouldin
New Dialect's Teen Intensive gives young dancers a taste of what it's like to work for a professional contemporary company.
The Teen Intensive is designed to give young dancers the opportunity to explore up-to-date methods in contemporary technique, to develop improvisation and partnering skills, and to experience working inside a collaborative creative process with our resident choreographer.
The program is designed
for dancers 13-17 years of age
who have completed at least 3 years of study in ballet, modern, jazz, and/or contemporary technique.
Each day begins with a guided improvisation session followed by classes in contemporary technique and partnering. After a short mid-afternoon break, dancers participate in rehearsals with Banning, where they have the opportunity to expand their skill sets and learn new choreography in a collaborative setting. The resulting piece will be shown on the final day of the Teen Intensive in an informal studio performance.
Teachers include members of New Dialect’s company and faculty.
Need based scholarships are available. Dancers must have a minimum of 3 years of dance training to be eligible.
