Young Choreographers Initiative, for ages 16+


Teaching Artists:

Full Description


With Susan Quinn 

This class is designed for young choreographers committed to transforming themselves and their world through the craft of dance-making while also expanding their dynamic range as performers. Artists will collaborate on a group piece for the end-of-year performance based on their discovery of what matters to them as a community. Get ready to connect, have fun, and create a dance that makes a difference! (This class is required for Senior YCI artists).

Requirements: Open to those who have completed 1 year of the Young Choreographers Workshop or by invitation. Students must commit to attending the session for the entire year and can look forward to creating work in collaboration with their peers. Since participation and partnership is an important part of this class, young artists may not miss more than 2 classes a semester. YCI participants can anticipate developing their leadership and showing initiative, which will require homework and rehearsal outside of regular class time. They will also be counted on to communicate with the director and their peers to fulfill their planning. We will discuss all expectations in a mandatory family meeting during the first class of the session.
