High School Programs
Dance Lab is for all high school dancers and choreographers, with a focus on developing the next generation of female leaders and leaders of color. There are two open workshops – one for teachers and arts liaisons and one for students. Students will also have the opportunity to apply for the Dance Lab Choreographic Fellowship.
All CPS dance teachers are invited to participate in a free workshop with Rena Butler, Hubbard Street Choreographic Fellow on October 25, 2019. After a reception and studio performance by the company, teachers will work with Rena, exploring the work and process of Kyle Abraham as a lens for developing emerging choreographers. From there, teachers be given guidance to identify and select students to participate in the Dance Lab Choreographic Fellowship - a series of workshops, culminating in a shared performance. Hubbard Street will work with the teachers to collaboratively mentor these students, providing resources to help take each high school dance teacher’s program goals further while focusing on student achievement in choreography.
Offered free of charge to all accepted students, the program has the following components.
· Dance Teacher Workshop - October 25, 5-7:30PM
High School Dance Teachers and Arts Liaisons are invited to join us to meet Choreographer Rena Butler (photo of Rena on page?) and view a studio showing of company work to learn about this exciting new program for high school choreographers.
