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.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL

The 1-week Hip Hop intensive is intended for beginning to intermediate dancers. All applicants should have at least 2 years of training dancing 2 or more hours per week. Students should be familiar with basic dance terminology and be comfortable with fundamental Hip-Hop movement principles such as isolations and groove. Most importantly, students should be eager and prepared to dance between 5-6 hours a day and be open to learning new styles while pushing themselves physically and mentally.
