AN INTENSIVE JAZZ EXPERIENCE
FOR ADVANCED DANCERS
MAY 30-JUNE 17
The Spring Jazz Intensive will immerse advanced dancers and dance educators in the style, essence and energy that have come to define the work of DJD. Passionate teachers, intoxicating music, dynamic movement, and an encouraging and inclusive learning environment come together for an unforgettable dance experience.
The Spring Jazz Intensive takes place over three weeks. Weeks 1 & 2 each offer daily morning drop-in classes at 9:00 & 10:45 am.
Week 3 offers dancers the opportunity to dive into the true DJD experience. The week offers four classes daily where dancers will join DJD Artistic Director for morning jazz class and creative process, DJD dancer Kaja Irwin for DJD repertoire, and restorative practice with Professional Training Program Director, Jamie Freeman Cormack. The week is rounded out with West African & AfroCuban dance with Ingrid Diaz, rhythmic play with DJD co-founder Michele Moss, and a discussion on jazz music with Dr. Jon McCaslin. It will be a wonderful week to immerse yourself into the work of DJD and the myriad of influences that have created the DJD aesthetic. For Week 3, dancers must register for the full week.
