There are Summer Intensive programs for dancers, then there is IDA in Fort Washington, PA. Looking for a summer dance workshop where you could experience the life of a dancer? The Institute of Dance Artistry (IDA) 2015 Summer Intensive Workshop is now accepting registrants. Our workshop consists of two separate one week sessions and you can enroll in either one or both. IDA’s one week programs are designed for 6th grade to college age dancers. In each session students will take daily dance technique classes in various styles including ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, and tap. All classes and choreography are taught and created by professional dancers and teachers from the Greater Philadelphia area. You will learn from the best of the best.
I teach dance at IDA and I am very much looking forward to our 2015 Summer Intensive programs. I don’t see teaching dance as a job. I see it as a big part of my life, it helps to define who I am. I can tell you from my own experience that both of our 2014 Summer Intensive weeks made my commitment to dance even deeper, that’s how personally fulfilling they were. The IDA Summer Intensive program is a non-competitive environment. Students care about each other, build relationships and help each other improve. By the end of each week students aren’t just following choreography but are feeling the dance. The level of personal and artistic accomplishment in that very short time period is almost magical.
Dancers are cast in performance pieces from solos and small groups to large production numbers. You rehearse for a two-night, fully costumed black box theater performance. Our first session runs from July 21st to July 25th, 9 AM to 3 PM. Auditions for performance pieces take place on July 20th. Performances are on July 25th and 26th at 7:30 PM. Our second session runs from August 18th to August 22nd, 9 AM to 3 PM. Auditions for performance pieces take place on August 12th. Performances are on August 22nd and 23rd at 7:30 PM.
Both sessions of the IDA 2014 Summer Intensive sessions were a huge success. The dancers completed their Summer Intensive experience by performing their pieces in a fully-costumed, two-night show. The performances were hosted in IDA’s Artistry Theatre, a black box performance space seating 80 people. There was magic in the air each night and when I think back to that experience I can still feel it. Best part, we get the opportunity to do it again in 2015.
Once again IDA is thrilled to bring you the perfect program for dedicated, passionate dancers from beginner to advanced who love to perform. Students will be divided by age and level so there is a place for everyone. Join us for this fantastic, immersive journey into dance! Feel the magic, there is nothing else quite like the Institute of Dance Artistry (IDA) Summer Intensive workshop.
