Before you finish solidifying your summer plans, consider making a little room for a four-day feast of contemporary dance.
From August 4–7, Broadway Dance Center in NYC will host a contemporary intensive for dancers 16 and up. Tracie Stanfield, the highly sought-after teacher and artistic director of Synthesis Dance Project, will head the intensive, with guest artists like former Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet dancer Billy Bell and director/choreographer Wes Veldink. In addition to daily barre classes and technique and rehearsal with Stanfield, Bell and Veldink, the four-day workshop will include a series of master classes, a concert dance Q&A panel, an in-studio presentation and video shoot and three drop-in classes.
To apply, fill out the online form, submit the application fee of $25 and email your dance resumé, headshot and a video of you in a contemporary class or performance to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer, you can audition in person during one of Stanfield's classes at BDC. Email info@SynthesisDance.org to set up a time. To access the online applicatio, click here. Good luck!
