YEP! Summer School
The New Zealand Dance Company is hosting an international exchange with Chicago-based dance theatre company Lucky Plush Productions, suitable for dancers 13 years old and over. The workshop is suitable for those with training in ballet, contemporary or jazz, and also street dancers keen to expand their movement vocabulary. This Youth Summer School comprises a morning technique class by the Lucky Plush company members, followed by rehearsals of a contemporary choreographic development process led by a graduate choreographer passionate about working with youth. This summer school is ideal for those wanting to experience international technique teaching in contemporary and jazz and will enhance skills in improvisation, acting technique, presentation and character development. The emphasis is on a fun and supportive learning environment, choreographic exploration and building towards a showing of work at the end of the workshop.
