The Moving Company Modern Dance Center
Offering classes since 1996
Moving Company Special Programs
In addition to our regular class schedule, there are several Moving Company special programs designed to supplement and enhance our dance curriculum.
Trying It On For Size
A mid-season performance, Trying It On For Size gives students in all classes an opportunity to create dance pieces that are performed by fellow students. Each student choreographer is responsible for selecting music, costumes, dancers, lighting and arranging rehearsals. The results are widely creative while building on and exploring skills learned in class. Trying It On For Size gives students a chance to express themselves through choreography and dance, and discover other facets of dance in addition to performing.
Dance Inventions is a six-session workshop open to all dancers at any level, run by the students. Two students choreograph a dance piece for the other students in Dance Inventions. The choreographers make all decisions about the piece including music, costumes, staging, lighting in addition to creating the dance. The resulting work is performed at the end-of –the-year concert and is always a highlight of the show. Dance Inventions is open to all Moving Company students ages 6 and up for nominal fee of $40.
Dance In A Day
Dance In A Day is just that! A dance is created in just one day's time that is performed in our June concert. With nothing more than a few hours and some fun props, a dance piece is created and rehearsed during this one day special program.
