VIM VIGOR SUMMER INTENSIVE
AUGUST 7-18, 2017
VIM VIGOR's SUMMER PROGRAM is in response to the need for contemporary dance-theater based education in the greater NYC area. The PROGRAM is anchored in the company's commitment to activating the whole of the performer, from the extremes of virtuosic dance to the fluid awareness of emotion and experience.
VIM's program is focused on professional development with daily contemporary floorwork classes that improve dancers' ability to access their natural stealth and power into and out of the floor, as well as conditioning classes aimed at supporting healthy alignment and stability. Then in the afternoon the company will offer workshops focused on improvisation, contact partnering and momentum based mechanics, VIM VIGOR repertory, acting exploration essential for dancers interested in dance theater, creative exchange with the company, roundtable community discussions, and an experiential sharing at the end of the two weeks.
Send a letter of interest along with these supporting materials: Summer Program Form, resume, headshot, and video links. Video links should include two consecutive minutes of your dancing (choreographed phrasework and improvisation are both acceptable, but no editing please). There is no in-person audition for this program, so please share footage that best represents you. All materials should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org, with SUMMER 2017 APPLICANT in the subject line.
All applicants invited to participate must secure their place with a security deposit - unless you prefer to pay in full for both weeks, or you are joining us for one week, in which case there are links to pay for the particular week you are planning on attending. Dancers must be at least 18 years old, but there is no age limit. All dancers should be advised that this is professional training, and while we accept a range of interested applicants, expect to the challenged every day. It's the best way to grow!
VIM VIGOR's creative home is with New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble in Summit, NJ. As artists in residence we have found that this incredible facility provides not only world-class studios, but a quiet and focused place in which we are able to dig deeper into our work. In this light, we are very pleased to host our Summer Program at NJDTE in August 2017. A direct train ride from NYC, the studios are a five minute walk from the station, and the town center is a safe and friendly area with coffee shops, restaurants, and more for relaxing (and recovering!) after the day's work.
Scholarships are only available for the full program. We have three scholarships available this summer, one full and two partial. The scholarship application date has passed for this year's intensive.
