The Art of Choreography

Diane Lewis, Instructor
Mondays, 7:15-8:15 pm
ages 14+
(12-13-year-olds with instructor permission); 2 years dance experience suggested

In six short weeks, aspiring choreographers will be introduced to elements of the choreographic process with the ultimate goal of producing a finished piece. Students will focus on crafting their own movement patterns with particular attention paid to the use of space, form, musicality, staging for maximum effect, and creating dances with impact. 

Students who join the class will be eligible to audition for the Summer Student Dance Showcase, a summer concert produced entirely by students of the Hochstein Dance Department. Don't miss this exciting chance to make and show your own dance piece!

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY! Selected summer dance students have the opportunity to participate in our Summer Student Dance Showcase on Friday, August 18 at 7:30 pm. The Summer Gala is an event planned and run by students – students work on production, costumes, choreography, and all other aspects of the performance.  All registered summer dance students can audition for the performance, and student directors are chosen by Dance Department co-chairs in consultation with the Hochstein Dance Faculty. Feel free to contact Diane Lewis at diane.lewis@hochstein.org for more information.
