2017 IDT Jazz Mini Summer Dance Camp #2 was unforgettable!!

Karissa was so proud of the IDT Jazz Mini Camp Dancers who learned a full 1:30 Jazz Piece in (3) 90 minute classes filled with Jazz technique (kicks, pirouettes, precision movement)

and all kinds of “sass”!

Thank you to all of the parents and family members who came to cheer them on today! These dancers were pure joy to work with!

IDT Creative Movement Summer Camp Was Magical!!

Karissa had so much fun with her dancers at the IDT Creative Movement Summer Dance Camp this week where they created artwork of maps, castles and magical kingdoms. Then they travelled through their map using locomotor movements, level changes, tempo changes and interpretations representing mountains, oceans, and different animals. They showed the shapes of the castles they draw using their bodies and demonstrated how the people of their kingdom celebrated and moved through the land. It was a truly magical time of creating visual art using their imaginations, interpreting their kingdoms through movement and telling a story through the art of dance! #intensitydanceteam #noregrets #idtsummerdancecamps2017#danceshouldbefun
