Texas A&M Collegiate Summer Dance Intensive is designed to provide serious dancers with the opportunity to prepare for dance at the collegiate and pre-professional level, as well as gain insight into campus life and the Dance Science Program at Texas A&M University. Participants must be ages 14-20 and have a minimum of four years of dance experience. Students will be staying in university dormitories, walking our vast campus, and working closely with dance faculty. Each day will include various classes in Ballet, Modern, and Wellness (Yoga, Pilates, etc.) as well as Improvisation and Choreography as taught by TAMU dance faculty: Carisa Armstrong, Christine Bergeron, Diane Cahill-Bedford, Andrea Alvarez, and Alex Pooley-Detwiler and other professional guests. For students looking to enter TAMU in Fall 2019 (Class of 2023) an audition will also be available during the intensive at no additional cost. Please click here for audition application to be completed and sent in prior to the intensive. Additionally, the students will participate in evening activities to enhance their preparation for dancing in college and beyond as well as explore our campus.
Here's a great article sharing what our friend Courtney Kalaher is doing with the PATHS program at Texas A&M and with her community through her studio, Out Loud Dance in Houston. “Movement is a form of communication. For Courtney Kalaher, using that movement to create relationships and community among people with disabilities is critical.” We couldn’t agree more. Thank you Courtney for all your amazing work!
This spring, TAMU Dance Faculty and 20 students travelled to Plano, TX to attend the 2017 South-Central American College Dance Association Conference. The conference offers dance classes all day long that our students were able to take part in. During this conference, five adjudication concerts take place where professionals in the dance field adjudicate dance works from different schools in the region. This year the TAMU Dance Program took two pieces to be adjudicated. The faculty work that was performed was Sierra: Driving the Descent, choreographed by Carisa Armstrong and Christine Bergeron.
Christine Bergeron also served as the faculty advisor and mentor for the student work that attended ACDA. The student work, Right and Ruin, was choreograohed by Lauren Banowsky and Brooke Griffin. Right and Ruin began as Lauren Banowsky’s Composition II work. Brooke began collaborating with Lauren in Fall 2016 and the piece was performed initially at the senior concert, Voyage. Right and Ruin was chosen by the adjudicators to be performed in the Gala concert for the South-Central Conference.
The International Association for Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS) Regional Conference, Healthy Approaches to Dance Practice and Performance, at Texas A&M University, will offer lecture movement sessions which, focus on current concepts in healthy approaches to dance training and performance. This one-day workshop will provide some basic essentials and practical strategies for dance training and performance, which promote the overall health and well-being of the dancer.
This October 14 students and 5 faculty members travelled to the Houston airport for their journey across the globe to attend the IADMS Conference in Wanchai, Hong Kong. The group arrived a few days before the conference in order to sight see and explore the islands of Hong Kong. Each day groups travelled across the area to visit temples, the big Buddha, and even Disneyland! Here are a few pictures to show some of the many memories made in Hong Kong:
