Basic description of program
The Nobles Dance Immersion is run by Nobles Dance Faculty Jillian Kinard and Anna Loveys. This week-long program takes place in our state-of-the art dance studio. The Nobles Dance Immersion provides training and development in ballet, contemporary, modern, jazz, musical theatre, hip-hop, and dance conditioning. Students will also develop their personal artistic voice through movement exploration and opportunities to create original choreography. We will also introduce the study of dance history, anatomy, and nutrition for dancers. The week will culminate in a showcase presenting the work accomplished and choreography learned. We welcome parents/guardians, friends and family to attend.
