VIM VIGOR SUMMER INTENSIVE
AUGUST 6 - 17, 2018 in NYC
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, and roundtable community discussions.
Send a short 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. Please note, that dancers must be at least 18 years old, but there is no age limit. All participants should be advised that this is advanced professional training, and while we accept and value a range of experience, expect to the challenged every day. It's the best way to grow!
All materials should be emailed to: email@example.com, with SUMMER 2018 APPLICANT in the subject line.
Once you have been invited to participate - a security deposit or payment of the program in full is required to reserve your spot. We have provided a convenient and safe PayPal link below to process your deposit - once we receive your deposit, we will follow up with an invoice reflecting the tuition balance.
