"Dance It!" Summer Intensive Program will take place in Sofia between August 22 and September 2. This is a two-week long international summer intensive dance program which, is an international collaboration targeting young dancers from Bulgaria (mainly) and from all over the world. It aims to contribute significantly to their dance training - to build upon their existing technique, expanding and enriching it with the vocabularies and practices of several fundamentally different dance forms. It aspires also to allow the dancers to take part in a creative process, as well as to benefit from the international exchange and intercultural communication.
In the course of two weeks young dancers (advanced and professionals) take classes in three different styles: Classical Ballet, Modern Dance, and Character Dance. The classes are taught by renowned teachers and choreographers from both continents - professionals who are at the top of their career. They bring their unique expertise to the young dancers who do not have the chance to experience this in their routine dance curricula. Each student also participates in the creation of repertoire, which will be showcased on the final day of the program.
This year our wonderful ballet teacher Paula Weber will have a class specifically for intermediate-level ballet dancers.
