A continuous formation guided towards the professional Urban Dance scene.
3 hours per week of Urban Dance training, techniques and theory to push motivated dancers to accumulate the tools necessary to follow Urban Dance as a career path.
ARTMOXIA director Cindy McAuliffe and project leader Lakesshia Pierre Colon of Ör Pür Dance Company will be co-ordinating the program over a 10 month, 35 week period that consists of multiple elements of the professional dance world.
Each month a different instructor will take charge of the trainings focusing on various aspects of training, self-discovery, self-development and creation skills.
Once a month a guest mentor representing renowned Urban Dance companies in Montreal such as Symbiotic Monsters, Tentacle Tribe, Ör Pür, VicVersa, and more will give a theory workshop or dance formation focused on important skills required to prepare dancers for future auditions, creative research, choreography, concepts, solos and more.
During the 2nd half of the project, a collective piece of 20 minutes will be created with the leadership of upcoming choreographers and experienced dancers to be presented publicly on June 16th 2018.
