Students in the three-week Dance Conservatory program receive individual coaching from our professional dance faculty in solo choreography and technique. In addition to developing and performing group choreography for a professionally shot dance video, each student choreographs and performs a solo dance piece that will be filmed on location in a city venue that engages viewers while complementing the mood and expression of the student’s performance. Students leave the program with a polished solo performance video to send to agents, submit with college or conservatory applications, and send to family and friends.

    Dance Conservatory students perform their own original choreography in a dance video that combines their creativity, talent, personality, and style. Each video is completely unique, and features a cool and compelling back-drop that will complement the choreography.
