REGISTER

Join Crash Dance Productions for 4 days of contemporary dance technique, improvisation, and repertory at the Cowles Center in downtown Minneapolis. Participants will work alongside teaching artists from the company to learn pieces from Crash’s repertory, culminating in a showing for friends and family at the TEK BOX.

We are pleased to offer a 4-day intensive for advanced and pre-professional level dancers. Each day, all dancers will have a one hour mini-class, instructed by various company members, in which students will participate in a warm up, contemporary dance technique progressions and combinations, and improvisational exercises.

Following class, advanced & pre-professional dancers will learn a piece of Crash’s repertory together. Components of repertory will be scaffolded to best fit dancers’ varying levels of experience and ability. Pre-professional students will finish each day learning an additional piece of repertory, designed to challenge dancers physically and artistically.

The advanced intensive is recommended for preteen and teen dancers, or dancers of any age with previous dance training. Most of our advanced dancers are middle school or high school students that attend/have attended dance studios or programs, and are looking for an immersive introduction to concert dance.

The pre-professional intensive is recommended for teens and adults with a strong contemporary dance background. Our pre-professional dancers are often high school or college students, or recent graduates, who have trained in contemporary, ballet, jazz, or modern dance.
