PHILADANCO! & CityDance Intensive | Ages 9-20
Location: Strathmore / Rockville
The PHILADANCO! & CityDance Intensive is ideal for students interested in challenging ballet technique and contemporary dance. Daily training includes ballet, pointe, men’s class, modern and jazz styles explored through Horton and Graham techniques taught by PHILADANCO! guest artists. Participants/dancers will gain a better understanding of the African dance diaspora and its influence on the development of American contemporary dance expression in the PHILADANCO! tradition by participating in dance history sessions and artist talks.
All students will have repertory experiences of high caliber in ballet and contemporary forms. Ballet repertory will include American neoclassical work by CityDance Teaching Artists. Contemporary works will be learned from the current professional repertory of PHILADANCO! and created by PHILADANCO! guest artists. Dancers will present their classical and modern/contemporary/jazz repertory in a showing for family and friends at the CityDance Studio Theater at Strathmore on the last day of the intensive. Year-round CityDance Conservatory students will carry this new work into the 2022-2023 season.
All CityDance Conservatory Intensives and Workshops require an audition. Learn more about our in-person and video auditions here.
