Repertory Dance Theatre presents an In-Depth Dance Workshop for Young Dancers, ages 10-17. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with RDT company dancers and take classes in a variety of styles including technique, composition, repertory, and Jazz/African dance.
This workshop will provide serious dancers and those that might be curious about a career in dance with an in-depth, creative, moving experience that will encourage growth and development in the art of dance and the skills of life.
Repertory Dance Theatre has been selected to be “Artists in Residence” at the 18th Snowy Range Summer Dance Festival at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. The Festival is an eleven-day long dance intensive workshop for dance students and educators hosted at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY.
From July 11th through the 21st, 2012, RDT dancers will be offering classes in Modern Technique, as well as creating new choreography, set on Festival participants.
In addition to Modern Dance, the Workshop also includes instruction in Ballet, Jazz and Tap, as well as historical lectures and discussions offered by visiting faculty members. The Festival concludes with a Gala Concert featuring RDT and student dancers in a program featuring pieces from RDT’s historical collection, along with the newly choreographed works.
