Choreography Creation Camp

2019 Charleston Gaillard Center’s Education Initiative


with Dance Conservancy of Charleston

June 24-28, 2019


Ages: 8-12

Camp Registration: $175

Tuition assistance available.


Give your child an exhilarating summer with our Choreography Creation Camp! This week-long session will challenge students academically and physically as they are immersed in the choreographic process. Each day will include technique classes in classical ballet and contemporary dance, as well as individual and group improvisation with the intent of extracting inspiration from non-traditional sources while exploring new movement patterns.

During the week students will be introduced to the principles of choreography through exciting and thought-provoking composition games and exercises, which will then become the building blocks of their own choreography. The workshop culminates in a performance of their original group piece followed by a discussion on the composition process on the stage of the Martha and John M. Rivers Performance Hall at the Charleston Gaillard Center.

 Teaching spatial coordination, creative problem solving and musicality, this camp is perfect for the eager, imaginative mind!
