Kanopy Dance Academy Online Live Dance Intensive & Classes
Kanopy Academy’s virtual class program, Dancing with Kanopy at Home, will launch an exciting summer of dance intensives and classes LIVE via ZOOM, June 15-August 7, 2020. Dance with world acclaimed guest artists along with Kanopy’s outstanding faculty and discover the pure joy of dance, deepen your technique and explore your artistry. Whether you are a creative beginner, on a professional track, or looking for a body-strengthening workout, Kanopy has a dance class just for you.
Offerings during Kanopy’s eight-week long summer session include creative modern dance, ballet, choreography & improvisation and dance history, as well as “intensives” in the premiere modern dance techniques including those of Lester Horton, Anna Sokolow, Doris Humphrey, Erick Hawkins, and Martha Graham. Special repertory classes will supplement the “intensives” -a rare, in depth training opportunity to learn excerpts from masterworks by those iconic shapers of modern and contemporary dance.
A special highlight will be learning Anna Sokolow’s signature work “Rooms”, a powerful dance about loneliness featuring music composed by Kenyon Hopkins for a jazz ensemble. As part of that project, Kanopy students, and those from select companies and colleges nationally, will collaborate through the fall with the Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble NYC creating virtual performances, shared rehearsals and coaching.
Kanopy’s summer curriculum will also be enriched with written creative projects, to be completed independently, and other special surprises. At the end of the session, students will have an opportunity to video and showcase their creative work.
With busy family schedules, we understand its not always easy to find screen time, so for optimal flexibility, we will also offer recorded versions for all of our classes that will available at the conclusion of each week of instruction for a period of seven days, and accessible through a Google Drive link.
Whether you are a creative beginner, on a professional track, looking for a body-strengthening workout or wanting to experience the pure joy of dance, Kanopy has a dance class just for you. We will continue to post news and updates in our e-blasts and other social media platforms.
