The Best Intensive for Aspiring Young Performance Artists and Choreographers
The Art of Performance and the Craft of Choreography:
At New Century Dance Project (NCDP)
If you want to be a better choreographer, you have to understand what it takes to be a great performer. Likewise, if you want to be an outstanding performance artist, then understanding the elements of choreography is essential. Choreographers who understand the dancers they’re working with will be better at drawing out what they need from those who they’ve cast in their work.Dancers who understand the choreographic process itself will be better at giving a dance maker what they’re asking for in their work. So, although performance and choreography do each require some unique training, education, and skills, there is much that overlaps between these two artistic endeavors. Regardless of your career goals and aspirations as a performance artist or choreographer, understanding what happens on the stage, off the stage, and behind the scenes will make you stand out among other dancers giving you a strategic advantage.
