STAY TUNED FOR 2018 FORUM 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.
