Why is Mutual Dance Theatre and Arts Centers' intensive right for your teen dancer?

We know that finding advanced Modern Dance for teens can be very difficult.

We also know that when dancers go to college, they’re likely to study Modern Dance. And for so many college freshmen coming from studios, the experience can be completely foreign to them.

Whether or not your child is considering going to college for dance, our Teen Intensive is also just a great time to be exposed to a slew of teachers and styles in Modern Dance, to broaden their horizons and challenge them.

That’s why we created our Teen Summer Intensive and Pre-College experience.

It's a nurturing, no-competition, self-affirming, but vigorous environment housed by the organization who knows Modern Dance best in Cincinnati.

Course: Modern Dance Technique

Claire’s Modern Dance class is an amalgamation of many styles/techniques which creates a movement structure that has flow, dynamics, and creative patterns. Each class will start with a comforting center warm up that allows dancers to focus on what each body might need. Across the floor and movement through space will also be featured by using all levels of space to find reach and groundedness. Discovering ways to be centered as well as taking the risk to fall will be a theme throughout.

 

Course: Inversion Techniques

Let’s get comfortable going upside down! We will approach inversions first through basic principles, then learning new skills each day. We will learn a few movement phrases that will incorporate everything we learn in class. If going upside down makes you nervous, don’t fret! There will be variations and modifications available. The goal of this workshop is to work in tandem with Modern dance class.

This unique week-long summer program is designed just for teens to explore Modern and Contemporary forms of dance, as well as to gain exposure to college dance programs in the region.
Consider this a pre-college dance experience for young dancers.
Mutual Dance Theatre and Arts Centers’  professionals teach within academic traditions and invite esteemed professors of dance who will share with students information about their programs.
The Modern Dance Teen Intensive is an invigorating week of dance that is both challenging and supportive. This is a safe, judgement-free zone for teens to have fun and make new friends

Generally, 13-18 years old for advanced teen dancers, but if your dancer is younger and has a lot of experience we also welcome them to sign up! This intensive is for dancers with a lot of training and experience. If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to send us an email! hello@mutualarts.org

As an organization, we do not have a strict dress code, per se. Individual instructors may vary in their opinions. In general, we encourage Modern Dancers to wear movement that assists in their flow and does not impede footwork. We ask NO mid-driffs and for full bottom coverage at least to mid-thigh. We ask dancers not to wear shorts other than “bike shorts” due to the amount of open-leg floor and inversion work we do. Chinese kneepads are encouraged. Floor work is extensive: please have coverage for backs, arms, and legs available at all times

We advise you bring the following:

  1. Lunch if you don’t want to leave the Center campus. We have a microwave, fridge, how water kettle, and stove available. However, within walking distance are: Kroger, Wendy’s, UDF, and Gold Star. Within driving distance are: Dragon City, La Casita, Penn Station, Country Fresh Market, Wyoming Community Coffee, Half Day Cafe, Wyoming Pastry Shop, Station Family + BBQ, Pollo Shaddai, Amma’s Kitchen (all-vegetarian Indian), We do BBQ, Song Long (Vietnamese), and more.
  2. Reusable water bottle. The drinking fountains are out of commission due to COVID. We will have filtered water coolers available.
  3. Layered clothing. The studio may get warm, but we recommend items to cover legs, arms, and backs for floor work. All of our floors are Marley. The lower level studio is cushioned Marley.
  4. Chinese knee pads. You may find these helpful.
  5. Note-taking materials. Our seminars will contain great information. Writing it down helps you remember!

The Mutual Dance Theatre and Arts Centers’ Teen Intensive will run from 9:00am-4:10pm. Our doors will open at 8:45am for drop off and our staff will stick around until 4:20pm for pick up!

Unfortunately, we cannot provide housing. However, we do have some trusted families in the city who may be able to host a dancer and are happy to make some introductions. Please email hello@mutualarts.org if you have serious interest in this.

Due to COVID-19, we will inform all instructors that dancers are not to do any partnering work. We also as a policy will inform instructors that touch/tactile aid is not allowed this summer.
