Description

The 12th Annual Oakland Dance Festival

Date: Saturday, November 18, 2017

Location: Harrison High School, 29995 West 12 Mile Road, Farmington Hills, MI 48334


We are pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Oakland Dance Festival will offer master classes in a variety of dance styles, workshops, college entrance/scholarship auditions, Performance Evaluations, and a Showcase Concert featuring dance companies from colleges and universities located throughout Michigan. This is a wonderful opportunity for dance students in grades 8-12!

We encourage dance studio teachers/owners and high school dance program directors to take advantage of our special group rates; however, students are welcome to register independently.

Get a jump start on your competition season by performing in ODF's PERFORMANCE EVALUATION & FEEDBACK process! This is an informal performance venue for dancers to showcase choreography before a panel of distinguished artists from College/University & Professional Companies. Our goal is to inspire and challenge dancers to take their rehearsals and performances to the next level. THE NEXT STEP...the panel will extend a special invitation for select groups/soloists to perform in the COLLEGE SHOWCASE CONCERT.

A FULL DAY OF MASTER CLASSES & WORKSHOPS will be available (for participants grades 8 – 12) in a variety of styles, including MODERN, CONTEMPORARY, BALLET, IMPROVISATION, PARTNERING, STREET/HIP HOP, AFRICAN DANCE, PILATES, YOGA AND MORE! All classes are taught by representatives from colleges/universities & professional companies.

COLLEGE RECRUITMENT & SCHOLARSHIP AUDITIONS will be held on-site for current high school juniors and seniors who aspire to major in dance. This unique experience will allow multiple colleges and universities to observe potential candidates for priority entrance, awards, and scholarships. Previous colleges to participate in ODF's on-site scholarship audition include Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Oakland University, Wayne State University, Western Michigan University, Marygrove College, Hope College, University of Michigan and Ball State University. Representatives from University of Michigan, Kristi Faulkner Dance and Artlab J have also selected recipients for their summer dance intensives at ODF. Participants and scholarship details will be updated for the 12th Annual Oakland Dance Festival.

OUR COLLEGE FAIR will provide students and parents with an opportunity to speak with college recruiters and company directors throughout the day. It's never too early to do your research on an institution that will best fit your educational needs!

THE COLLEGE & PROFESSIONAL SHOWCASE CONCERTS will feature special performances by the college dance departments, professional companies, high school students selected during the Performance Evaluation & Feedback process.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SEPTEMBER 8, 2017!
