Dance Performance Program – George Brown College


[music] DEREK SANGSTER: George
Brown Dances Dance Performance program is a
two-year diploma program. It is a program that is
thick in practical work. We really concentrate
on in-studio class time. The program is well-rounded with
classes in classical dance; point for the females. We offer pas de deux
for both men and women. It is also complimentary with
heavy studies in contemporary and jazz classes. HANNA KIEL: In contemporary
stream I teach repertoire and composition class. So I teach them how to be more
authentic and also be able to make a decision for themselves
in their creative process as a dancer and a choreographer. CYNTHIA MACEDO: Classical stream
enables dancers that are really serious about becoming a
classical dancer and performing in a true classical company. It’s not a class situation. It’s a coaching situation so that
they can develop their skills of turning and jumping
and creating strengths and performance quality that
pertains to a classical dancer. Successful graduates of this
program will have a well-rounded vocabulary of dance and they
will be able to dance many different genres of dance and
it will make them versatile and strong, athletic and
very polished performers. DEREK SANGSTER: Upon graduation
our students go into so many different avenues of the
dance community and the theatre community and the
arts community in general. I have students that fall into
the commercial side of things. I have students who mentor within the
Canada’s Ballet Jorgen Company. What I’m most proud of is that
their time here has opened up their eyes to all the different
possibilities that they have. [music]
