World Dance Movement set for Netherlands
World Dance Movement, an organization that presents dance workshops in exotic and beautiful locations all around the globe, will give dancers the chance to not only train and study under international faculty for nearly two weeks, but to partake in various excursions in Amsterdam, a city well-known for its picturesque canals, world-famous museums and historical sights. Plus, at the end of each week of classes, students will perform the choreography they have learned throughout the week in a gala in Chassé Theater.
Faculty for this workshop include: Michèle Assaf (USA), Desmond Richardson (USA), Igal Perry (USA), Wes Veldink (USA), Michele Oliva (USA/Italy), Francesca Dario (USA/Italy), Joshua Pelatzky (USA), Eva Sánchez Martz (Spain), Erica Sobol (USA), Naomi Deira (Holland), Maurice Causey (Holland), Jermaine Browne (USA) and Alexander Zhembrovskyy (Slovenia.)
Classes include: ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, lyrical, acrobatics, fusion jazz, modern jazz and Complexions Contemporary Technique.
Classes are broken up into three levels, intermediate, advanced and professional. All dancers must be 18 years old to participate in the program without a chaperone/guardian. Dancers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone at least 21 years of age. However, if dancers cannot bring a chaperone, they can contact WDM and staff will attempt to assign one. There is a $200 fee per week for the chaperone/guardian.
