Summer Dance Intensive
JUL 20 - AUG 15 / 2015

For Dancers Ages 14-21

Northwest Dance Project’s Summer Dance Intensive, held at our beautiful state-of-the-art dance studios in Portland, offers a rigorous, inspiring, and unique experience for advanced dancers ages 14 to 21.

Immerse yourself in professional technique classes and experience the creative process, repertoire, improvisation and movement styles that are necessary tools for every dancer. Dancers will train with the award-winning company members of Northwest Dance Project.

Today’s dancers are asked to improvise, reinvent steps, switch-up phrases, change musicality and make impulsive, artistic choices. Technique alone is not enough — dancers must also now be creators.

This intense, hands-on month of training will provide dancers with the insights, improvisational skills and creative tools that are needed by the most sought after companies and choreographers of today.

Each day will start with a ballet class followed by a contemporary technique class. After the lunch break, dancers will participate in repertoire, improvisation, composition and choreographic development sessions. Informative discussions with our artists on career and college planning and life of a professional dancer will also be offered. The dancers will be split into two groups by age and merit in order to facilitate increased individual attention.

Dancers will dance Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and Saturday, 12:30 to 4:30pm. These four weeks of creative discovery will culminate in an exciting public theater showing on Friday, August 14 / 2015. This is a ticketed event.

Northwest Dance Project is committed to offering a supportive and encouraging environment so that each dancer can develop and discover their unique creative voice. Dancers will work with Northwest Dance Project’s extraordinary, award-winning company members and Artistic Director as they are mentored to push and develop their creativity, ideas and versatility.

Tuition: $1900 USD
Housing + Meals: $2200 USD
