Students in the three-week Dance Conservatory intensive 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 venue that complements the mood of the student’s performance. Students leave the program with a polished solo performance video to share with friends, send to agents, or submit with high school, college or conservatory applications.
Your music. Your mood. Your moves. Mentor under SOCAPA's master dance choreographers to create a solo choreography piece that reflects your unique style and personality. Showcase your full range of talents through individualized coaching and one-on-one workshops aimed at refining technique and building new skills.
Create something fun, something dark, something new. The creativity is yours - SOCAPA Dance is here to help you realize it.
During the first week, conservatory instructors will get to know the abilities and strengths of each dancer, and help students generate ideas for their solo choreography. The second week of the program focuses on the development of compelling solo choreography.
During the third week, dancers performs their solo dance on location with a professional film crew. These performances are edited and screened for the entire camp and parents at our Final Friday Showcase.
SOCAPA's Dance Conservatory is reserved for Advanced students who wish to develop new techniques in contemporary dance and push their own creativity. Classes and individualized coaching will not be provided in the hip-hop style.
In addition to developing your solo choreography, collaborate with your fellow dancers in two group dance videos. SOCAPA's dance choreographers will choreograph two new and unique dances that showcase the talents of the class to be performed live and for the camera. Take part in costuming and makeup classes, and incorporate what you learn into your solo.
