FirstSteps, a Student Choreographic Workshop, further enriches the training of CPYB dancers beyond the traditional student/performer boundaries. Students have the unique opportunity to learn elements of classical composition and explore how to organize and illuminate their thoughts while working with dancers in a leadership role. Workshops culminate with in-studio public performances showcasing the choreographers’ created works.
CPYB students submitted proposals that outlined their vision for music, style of dance, and the number of dancers needed. All were invited to participate in nine hours of choreographic composition class led by FirstSteps Director, Alan Hineline. Following the class, four students were selected to produce their new, original works starring fellow CPYB dancers. Their dynamic new works which will premier on Saturday, January 25 at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
