CHECK BACK SOON FOR ADDITIONAL FACULTY!
The BHumn Dance Forum is a playground for young emerging artists to find their own individual artistic voice while solidifying their physical technique. Daily ballet classes focus on classical and contemporary techniques, anatomical placement and kinesthetics, and overall expression and artistry. Following ballet, the day consists of foundational modern techniques, contemporary repertory, jazz, tap, and hip hop. Improvisational techniques are used cross genre. Students attending The Forum are expected to come daily with an open heart and a curious mind ready to explore anything that may be thrown their way. This program throughly explores the creative process in all of it's facets in a safe and nurturing environment that enables students to gain the awareness of both the artistic and technical challenges presented in movement, and the knowledge and problem solving skills to face those challenges with success. The Forum is a process, a conversation, a journey, a discussion, and a collaboration of artistic spirits where both the student and the teacher walk away enriched.
NEW THIS YEAR!
We are excited to announce our Adv./ Pre-Professional track this year at The Forum! This track will include a morning technique class in ballet, modern, or contemporary, to be followed by creative process and repertory with various industry artists. This track will be heavily discussion and process oriented and geared towards connecting emerging dancers with concert choreographers and professional company dancers with the goal of learning more about the professional field and how to succeed. It is a great program for cultivating a personal voice in collaboration with other highly influential creators. Possible opportunities for creation on the younger program may also arise.
