Creative Choreography and Film Intensives
EXIST Creative Choreography & Film Intensive explores movement from jazz, lyrical, and modern dance techniques. Participants have a true passion for dancing and show dedication, put forth positive effort, and work together as a team. Proper alignment and technicality of the body, intermediate to advanced ballet training, and advanced knowledge of dance vocabulary are all necessary in order to comfortably participate in the intensive.
"Escape" (2017) incorporated strength conditioning, technique, choreography, and teamwork. Dancers choreographed their own solos using their knowledge of space, shapes, and emotion. We added a special prop this year! ;-)
"Sunsets" (2016) included classes in dance technique, movement improvisation, and elements of choreography. The dancers worked together to choreograph a contemporary piece which was filmed at a beautiful park in Santa Barbara.
“Mermaids” (2015) was a fun summer project that introduced students of all ages to contemporary dance and choreography. The first class was dedicated to learning movement and concept as well as costuming. The second class was dedicated to filming the project at Goleta Beach.
"Hope" (2015) included two free Lyrical classes that introduced improvisational movement and emotion in choreography.
