The Breakdown: Movement Camp is designed to teach basic fundamentals of dance to today’s fast-moving and rapidly evolving marching arts performers. This 3-day intensive will give students proper and SAFE tools to bring back to their marching programs and set new goals for their peers and Band’s show design. This ONE-OF-A-KIND event includes diverse workshop classes with tremendous focus on Education, Safety and Performance. The variety of classes for students will include: Beginning dance fundamentals, traveling through dance, stretch class, jumps and leaps, acting workshops, choreography sessions, marching fundamentals, leadership and self-expression.
Not only is The Breakdown aimed for the marching performers, it also offers in-depth education classes for Band Directors, Assistants and Visual Technicians. This Director’s Program is here to help give today’s Marching Arts teachers the confidence to guide their students through the movement process, SAFELY and efficiently. We understand that instructing dance fundamentals is a specialty trade and we want to offer as much knowledge to todays teachers so that they can grow along with their students and the band’s design programs.
