Dance It! 2014 Spring Program
31.03 - 06.04.2014

Bulgaria

Dance It! is a week-long annual dance intensive program which takes place in Bulgaria during the academic spring break. It is an international collaboration which targets young dancers from Bulgaria and from all over the world. 

The project is being implemented with the financial support of America for Bulgaria Foundation.

In the course of the week, young dancers (both professionals and advanced amateurs in training) take classes in five different styles:

  • Ballet,
  • Modern Dance,
  • Jazz,
  • Hip Hop,
  • Character Dance;

The classes are taught by renowned teachers and choreographers from USA and Europe who bring unique expertise to dancers who do not have the chance to experience it in their routine dance curricula. Each student also participates in a choreography set up during the course of the workshop.

The goal of the project is to give young dancers the opportunity to acquire knowledge of several fundamentally different dance forms and techniques, while also allowing them to take part in the creative process and experience international exchange and intercultural communication.

The spring program closes with a big final show – a combination of the new pieces of the choreographers performed by the workshop participants, and repertoire shown by specially invited renowned guest dance artists.

In the course of the workshop week, different dance master classes, as well as public discussions on relevant topics, also enrich the program.

Each year, few of the best workshop participants receive scholarships for summer dance intensive programs in renowned U.S. schools and companies.
