Choreographic Workshops

Introductory workshops in Choreographic Composition for Students

Helping young artists ignite their choreographic voices

The exploration of compositional structure and movement generation are the primary focus of these workshops. Workshops begin with an academic analysis of basic form and progress into a creative period of movement exploration/manipulation and choreographic development.

The goal of the workshops is for students to gain insight into the intellectual and creative process of choreography while discovering their own artistic voice.

Annual workshops are part of the educational programs at both Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and Ballet Academy East.
