MDM’s special Student Choreography Camp is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for dancers to push themselves to move from simply following steps to creating steps of their own. Open to dancers ages 11-18**, our Choreography Camp will give each participant an opportunity to learn about famous choreographers as well as helpful hints for creating original works. Please note that only dancers ages 14 and up will be invited to create their own choreography and choreographing an original piece is optional. Dancers who are either too young or choose not to choreograph will learn these emerging choreographer pieces and experience a wide variety of choreography styles. This camp ends with a Showcase performance, featuring the original works, held at Wichita Center for Performing Arts (date and time TBD).
