Summer Dance Intensive 2021
Artistic Moments: Power, Passion, Pose
with Hunter Museum of American Art
This year’s summer intensive has a special focus on choreography and art. Along with their pre-professional classes in various forms of dance, students will have the unique opportunity to create site-specific dance work at The Hunter Museum of American Art. Taking inspiration from the works in the museum, specifically their new exhibit, “Power, Passion, Pose: Photographs by Ken Browar and Deborah Ory” showcasing internationally-renowned ballet dancers, the choreographic process will be guided by experienced instructors. Dancers will show their work on Saturday, July 24th at noon in a live performance at the museum.
Using improvisation, elements of composition, movement research, and exploration of theme, students will collaborate together to create concept-driven works of dance. Composition and improvisation, as well as the ability to contribute artistically, are valuable skills for any dancer, especially those hoping to work in the professional dance world. This course offers students a chance to discover their creative voice, as well as provide opportunity to support the ideas and artistry of their peers as they collaborate together.
