Summer Session (June 3-July 26)
A Time To Dance offers 7- weeks that challenge dancers to delve deeper into the art of dance bringing together the finest in technique, body awareness, strength and artistic development. Dancers will be given the information and feedback to better understand the anatomy and physiology of dance technique and how to apply it personally in an environment that encourages appreciation of the process while students reach towards their full potential. Great attention to detail and quality of movement is emphasized.
The incredible teaching team, augmented by guest teachers, comes from prestigious universities, and professional dance companies. Instructors will give individualized corrections, thoughtfully communicating progress and areas for improvement. Each guest instructor offers specialty classes in which they choose what style of dance they would like to impart with the students. Specialty classes often consist of modern, jazz, lyrical, Pilates, African dance, or repertoire. The specialty classes will vary depending on which guest instructor is teaching.
Along with our daily classes and special guest instructor class offerings, there are also 3 summer workshops that give the students opportunities to expand their knowledge and grow in versatility. These workshops are our God Given Gifts Retreat, Musical Theatre Camp, and a very special opportunity for a Workshop/Q&A Session with world renowned physiotherapist, Lisa Howell.
