Erin created a piece for BB2 in May, presenting dance on screen. The response from this was so great that it sparked this new workshop for young dancers to experience creating a dance film. This class will be a small taste of the process and the students will receive the final product on DVD.
DVD will be available for collection the following week.


What happens during the 3.5 hours for each class?
Students will:
– learn a dance sequence
– have the opportunity to choreograph and/or adapt learned sequences for site-specific film
– work as a team to set the movement and film
Note: there will be breaks throughout the class time.

What should the participants wear?
Comfortable everyday summer clothing, without brands or images showing. Dresses are ok with bike shorts underneath. Soft closed shoes required such as canvas shoes. Bring clothing and shoe options if unsure.

Where do we meet?
Level 3A–4A meet at Wonderland Lake Park playground off Poplar Avenue.
Level 4B–7 meet at Starbucks on 29th Street Mall.

What is the parents’ responsibility (pick-up/drop-off, hanging out etc.)?
Parents are responsible for dropping off their child at the start and picking up their child at the end of class. You do not need to stay during the class time, though you are welcome to if you like.

Do we need to bring food?
Snacks would be a good idea as there will be some small breaks.
