Rockettes Summer Intensive16, April 2013 Print
If you are an advanced dancer who wants to train in the Rockettes style, the Rockettes Summer Intensive is for you. Entering its twelfth season, RSI has produced more than 50 Rockettes.
The Rockettes reflect individual talent, hard work, athleticism, training, teamwork and dazzling synchronicity whenever they perform. The Rockettes Summer Intensive offers aspiring professional dancers the unique opportunity to train with the Rockettes, and a Rockettes Director/Choreographer, learning their world famous precision dance technique. This distinctive style transcends a multitude of dance disciplines, including Jazz, Tap, Musical Theater, Lyrical and the legendary Kick Line.
The curriculum focuses on original choreography and formations from the Rockettes repertoire that will culminate in a student Showcase to be held in a New York City theater. This opportunity for dancers to connect with the professional dance world and study the world-famous Rockette precision dance technique is invaluable to the dedicated dancer.
- One week of intensive study with the Rockettes and a Rockettes Director/Choreographer
- Six hours of class daily with emphasis on Rockettes choreography.
- Final Showcase performance plus one ticket to the Student Showcase (additional tickets may be purchased).
• Classes and rehearsals offered every day from 9:30am to 5:00pm.
• Classes include: Theater Dance, Jazz, Tap, Kick Line, Formations, Performance and Audition Technique.
• Group education seminars will be scheduled in the evening.
The Rockettes Summer Intensive is pleased to continue a special invitation-only week, designed to give select students the opportunity to train at the highest level of the Rockettes technique. Students will study each day with a Rockette Director and two Rockette Assistant Choreographers. An emphasis will be placed on preparing the dancer for the Rockettes audition and there will be a Showcase opportunity at the end of the week that will feature some of the current Rockette choreography as seen at recent live appearances and on television specials. All dancers must attend a live audition to be considered. Class size will be limited.
To be considered for the Rockettes Summer Intensive, dancers must be 14 years of age with a minimum of 5 years training in tap, jazz and ballet and must attend a Rockettes Summer Intensive audition or submit a video audition.
