Overview:

The one week dance intensive introduces students to the discipline of dance at a professional level. Students focus on one style and work to quickly learn the choreography of a full-length piece, which they perform on a dance shoot as well as for a live audience. Even in this short time students are guided in creating a unique piece of choreography in small groups. This is also performed live at the final showcase.

Student Choreography

SOCAPA Dance students are assigned a choreography project and work in small groups to prepare a short, original piece to be presented at the final showcase. Students are responsible for everything from music selection to costuming, and are encouraged to explore tempo changes, transitions, floor work, phrasing, and partner work. There is allotted time to work on the project outside of class and faculty will be there to guide you through the process and push your work to the next level.
