2011 Dance Share: OhioDance Festival
This years’ Dance Share is an informal process for students that will provide valuable feedback to young dancers’ work. The share will be a student discussion facilitated by Marlene Leber, Director of Dance Hathaway Brown, and Kelly Berick, Director of Firestone High school Dance Department. This will be a supportive, non-competitive and comfortable atmosphere. Those selected will present a piece of work of 5 minutes or less followed by a 10 minute dance forum (discussion and feedback of your work). We look forward to seeing your work!
Eligibility and Selection Process
The 2011 OhioDance Festival “Dance Share” will take place at BalletMet in Columbus, Ohio on April 30, 2011 from 1:30- 3pm. All Ohio-based professional and pre-professional members of OhioDance are eligible to apply. Students must be between the ages of 15-22 years old. A panel of OhioDance Board of Trustees will select the performers. Download the application here for more details.
Everybody Dance Now! (EDN!) uses hip-hop dance to create positive outlets for young people who would otherwise not have access to dance opportunities. For the past 4 years, we have offered free dance programming to over 850 children and teens in 3 cities throughout California. EDN! is looking to expand their reach across the country and open chapters in other cities like Columbus, OH! To make this a reality, volunteers are needed to get a Columbus chapter of Everybody Dance Now! up and running! Help is needed in all areas of organization for the club such as dancers with hip-hop experience to lead classes. Volunteers to help oversee operations and outreach of a possible EDN! chapter in Columbus are also in high demand (no dance experience needed, just a love for the art)! This project is in its beginning stages in the Columbus area, but to learn more about EDN!'s amazing accomplishments in California, check out their website.
The Fall issue of our the DNB Library Newsletter is now available! It contains an outstanding article, In Celebration of Anna Sokolow's Centennial 1910-2010 by Hannah Kosstrin.
Plan ahead for the summer by visiting our seasonal dance intensives page. It can be found under current student resources on the website. New opportunities added this week.
