OhioDance Festival: April 30, 2011
An informal process for student choreography performed by students, to 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 five minutes or less followed by a ten minute dance forum (discussion and feedback of your work). We look forward to seeing your work!
