DC NEXT Summer Choreographic Intensive
July 6th - 30th
Georgia Tech, DramaTech Theater
Students spend 3.5 weeks developing skills to be successful both "onstage and backstage". Our DC NEXT students take daily classes in Ballet, Modern, Jazz and guest classes in other styles of dance from choreographers around the country. Our students also have the opportunity to choreograph, direct and produce an outdoor performance at the end of the summer. In addition to dance classes and choreography, our students receive career building workshops to help them plan for the next steps in their careers post-high school and college.
(**Space extremely limited due to Covid safety restrictions.)
DC NEXT Summer Dance Film Intensive
June 7th - 18th 2021
10am - 2pm
Back by popular demand, our new 2-week virtual summer program provides students with in-depth dance courses and mentorship, along with a Dance on Film program designed for young dance film makers and choreographers. Students take online classes in Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Contemporary and receive workshops in leadership, career goal setting. Our Dance on Film program is designed by Temple University Professor, Britt Fishel, and allows students to explore their creative and directorial skills behind the camera. The program concludes with an micro-film festival, and students leave the program with a portfolio that includes a resume, produced and edited dance film, and a social media marketing plan.
