September 4, 4 - 6 PM
Students with a background in ballet and contemporary are encouraged to attend. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information about how to pre-register for the September 4 audition.
Under the leadership of School Director Kimi Okada, our teen contemporary dance company performs work by the choreographers of our professional company, ODC/Dance (Brenda Way, KT Nelson, and Kimi Okada), as well as renowned guest choreographers who have included Katie Faulkner, Robert Dekkers, Dexandro Montalvo, Chuck Wilt, Erica Chong Shuch, and Scott Wells. Members of the Dance Jam are challenged with the creation of new works, and the complexities of training in multiple dance techniques. They engage in dance mentorship with other students in the Youth & Teen Program, and are offered the unique experience of working with ODC/Dance, the professional parent company. With guidance from ODC staff, the Dance Jam produces their annual home season, expanding their skill set and understanding of work within a professional dance company. Dance Jam members are held to the highest standards of attendance, behavior, discipline, and performance. The Jam will hold additional rehearsals between the Fall and Spring Sessions (December 17, 2018 – January 11, 2019).
