Ready to see what life is like as a dance professional? This intensive will take you there. Intermediate and advanced dancers will experience a variety of dance techniques from multiple teachers throughout the course of 2 weeks.  Students will study ballet, modern, and jazz techniques and will learn three different pieces of choreography that will be used throughout the 2018-2019 season. Additionally, participants will be able to connect with dancers who have danced on Broadway, at Disney, in professional companies, and more.  Other guest speakers will include professors at universities, dance teachers, studio owners, and dance therapy counselors. There will be a photo day in which dancers can get their standard head shot (needed for most professional and university auditions), and a few other images of full body dance poses. The sitting fee for the photos is included in the price of the intensive and students will be able to purchase prints and files of the photos directly from the photographer for additional costs. Students will have a short performance at CDT at 6pm on Friday, July 20th.
