Dance Medley Workshop 2018 Info Packet

DANCE MEDLEY 2018

Love dance but don’t know where to start? Have you ever wanted to try a new style/genre of dance? Come to the Dance Medley Camp and experience a three-day whirlwind of introductory dance classes that will be sure to open your eyes to the exhilarating diversity of movement that we call dance. From ballet to hip hop and ballroom to tap, the Medley camp offers a sample of the plethora of dance classes uniquely offered at BYU.

Experience quality, professional instruction from BYU’s nationally recognized dance faculty and guest instructors. Participants will experience valuable enrichment as they progress at their own individual pace, beginning to intermediate level dance in an uplifting environment that builds camaraderie and confidence.

Each day will include six hours of dance training in some of the finest facilities available. Classes are kept small so each participant receives personal attention and beneficial feedback. Dancers will grasp new dimensions in dance and gain individual worth as they acquire new skills and develop their individual stylization in composition/choreography. Dancers will then have an opportunity to showcase their learned skills and artistry in a closing Informance demonstration. During free time, on–campus participants can relax and enjoy recreation provided by our friendly recreation counselors. Weekend activities include a day at Seven Peaks Waterpark and a day in Salt Lake City. Other activities include swimming, bowling, dances, games, movies, contests, and skits. There will be some free time to explore the beautiful campus, shop at the BYU Store, or visit museums on campus.
