Summer Academy in DanceMotion Performance Capture

This year's intensive includes Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Hip-Hop technique, Pilates, Dance Conditioning and Audition Prep. New this year we are giving the dancers the opportunity to explore what we call Active Space, which asks that they choreograph and improvise using our Motion/Performance Capture technology.

Dancers work with renowned UC Irvine Dance faculty including Lisa Naugle, Tong Wang, John Crawford and others, as well as with our stellar MFA dancers who come to us from thriving professional dance careers. 

Dancers should be talented, motivated, advanced dancers. Intermediate dancers may be considered should they be willing to work at an adcanced level. Registered students must audition for placement. Auditions may be submitted to artsoutreach@uci.edu via a secure video sharing site.
