Beginning this month, CityDance School & Conservatory is holding its first in-person summer programs since 2019 at sites including Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland and Whittle School & Studios in Van Ness, DC.
“CityDance has been a partner of Whittle since they opened, providing dance classes to their students,” said Alexe Nowakowski, CityDance president and CEO. “We are excited to host our summer programming there.”
The summer programs, for children ages 5 to 15, include in-person and online themed camps (think superheroes and musical movies). Dancers ages 10 and up can elevate their technique and learn challenging choreography in DanceUP and Musicals & More.
Online camps provide young dancers with daily classes in hip hop, ballet, modern, jazz and tap. In-person camps include daily dance classes in multiple styles, arts and crafts, and an end-of-week showing for friends and family.
CityDance is also hosting pre-professional summer intensives for dance students ages 8 to 20 at Whittle, Strathmore and online.
CityDance School & Conservatory summer intensives provide challenging training in classical and contemporary techniques, world dance forms, dance history, improvisation / composition and repertory. PHILADANCO! and Koresh Dance Company join the ranks of world-renowned guest artists coming to DC, Maryland and online platforms this summer. Intensives are open to dance students ages 8 to 20. Each intensive requires an audition. There is a virtual audition on Friday, June 11. And dancers can audition via video.
CityDance says a Covid-19 health and safety plan has been adopted in accordance with federal, state and local government regulations to ensure a safe and fun summer.
