ChoreoLab Dance Intensive offers dancers the chance to expand their learning, creativity and unique artistic voice through Ballet, Modern, ChoreoLab, Hip Hop, and African Dance. Our week-long program supports dancers in strengthening their motor, technical, cognitive, social and emotional skills in addition to developing their unique movement vocabulary through the use of the Language Of Dance tool (LOD). LOD is a unique tool for exploring, creating and recording dance through the use of symbols.
Grow your technique to the next level with the renowned Kansas City- and NYC-based dance company The DynamitExperience. Our Advanced Intensive motivates seasoned dancers to challenge themselves and elevate their technical proficiency and artistic abilities. Personalized instruction hones artistry and expression through in-depth improvisational, partnering and compositional techniques. Dancers will gain essential skills for auditions and choreography, and discover new career pathways in the dance field.
