 DancerSpace 2014 is a new and exciting, comprehensive dance intensive for pre-professional dancers in our community. Classes are open to any high school, college-age or adult dancers who would like to learn more about the “ins and outs” of being a dance professional. The program is designed to help prepare pre-professional dancers for the demands of higher level dance programs and a professional career in dance. Each day we will offer classes in various techniques and styles taught by professional dancers/teachers/ choreographers, and a lunchtime seminar. 

Classes run daily from 9am-8pm, Monday through Thursday and Friday’s are reserved for a special community dance session 9am-11am with pre-professional prep sessions all day until 4pm (Pre-Professional Friday).

Participate in our free lunch discussions (Lunch & Learn) covering topics ranging from Self Care (stress management, performance anxiety, balancing the demands of life with dance), Nutrition (eating “clean”, superfoods for energy, performance, muscle and joint health), Body Care (foot care, stretching, sleep, cross training, injury prevention and options for rehabilitation, reflexology, bodywork), Professionalism (etiquette, auditions, interviews, social media, self-promoting, resumes, head shots, competitions, performances, time management, money management and budgeting, dance bag necessities, quality training), Careers in Dance and the Creative Arts, to what it takes to Go Pro (education, training, professional experience, degrees, programs, companies, conservatories, internships, etc..). Light breakfast will be available each morning. Dancers will have their choice to pre-order the daily healthy lunch option or to bring their own lunch. Bottled water will be available throughout the week.

All dancers must register online for all dance classes ($15 per class) and must present their printed ticket to attend each session.
