To kick off our 2016–17 season of Pre-Professional Programs at Hubbard Street, we are thrilled to offer our first-ever workshop focused on generating and organizing your own phrasework, coaching and directing dancers, and finally, presenting an original composition. Led by Hubbard Street 2 Director Terence Marling, Artistic Associate and Coordinator of Pre-Professional Programs Meredith Dincolo, along with Hubbard Street Artistic Staff and Faculty, our Fall Dancemakers Intensive is the seventh program in an expanded lineup of learning opportunities in focused environments, exclusively for early-career and pre-professional dancers. The content of each intensive has been carefully selected to challenge participants productively, by bringing them into the day-to-day experiences of Hubbard Street’s world-renowned company. Each day includes technique classes, such as ballet and Gaga/dancers improvisation, followed by choreographic assignments, creative challenges, and compositional constraints. All dancers will create their own work, as well as participate in choreography by others. Everyone’s work will be informally shared and discussed at the conclusion of the five-day session, and all are welcome to document their final projects, using their own video and audio equipment. Maximum of 30 students admitted. Pre-registration required.
