We try to offer master classes on other forms of dance as scheduling allows. We hope to schedule Orlando Pagan, Artistic Director of Syzokryli Ukranian Dance Ensemble, to return for a character dance master class this school year. Mr. Pagan guested at our Summer Dance Intensive this year.
Master Classes are announced to our students as they are scheduled.
We have had some wonderful guest teachers over the years including Leslie Browne and Maria Calegari. We are most fortunate that one of our former students, Nicole Graniero, now dances with American Ballet Theater and returns to teach in our Summer Workshops and to give master classes. Class size is always limited to ensure students get full attention.
Each year we have Todd Hall, a well known area master teacher and choreographer, in to do at least one partnering workshop. These prepare our graduating seniors for partnering in the recital, and give all students in Intermediate 3 and up an opportunity to learn partnering. Dancers invite boy(friends) and we have had as many as 20 young men, many of them High school athletes, attend. Some of these boys have gotten 'hooked' and have performed with us in recitals or have gone on to take dance classes in college. Mr. Todd's unique blend of high expectations and humor make these most popular workshops.
