SOLD OUT: Summer Dance Program

Grades: 6th-12th

Days: Monday-Friday

Class Time: 04:00 PM- 07:00 PM

+ More Info

Join us at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts for our 3-week Summer Dance Program. This fast paced and challenging program is designed for intermediate and advanced dancers looking to build strength, improve technique, and explore artistry. The schedule includes a daily ballet class and pointe class followed by either classical variations or contemporary choreography that has been specially arranged for in-person and at home learning spaces. Each day, students will also be provided with the opportunity to dig deeper into their technique and self expression through focused lessons in floor work, mindfulness, pantomime and more. The three week program culminates with a filmed video project of work to share with friends and family. The program will take place at the Delbridge Performance Space at the HCA. Class size will be kept small to promote social distancing.

Please Note: In event that the workshop is not able to be held on-site in our dance studio, a laptop, tablet or video-conferencing device and a reliable internet connection are required for this class. Also a barre, straight back chair, or counter approximately 40-42” high and 6 feet of clear floor space needed. Students may be asked to film homework to share with the group, so an iPhone or camera is also required. Students may be asked to attend 30-minute film sessions outside of regular class time to prepare for the film project. Film sessions will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time for students and instructors. Our instructors are committed to each and every student and look forward to being together with them in-person or online. We can’t wait to welcome you!
