DANCE HUB 2021
July 13-29, 2021
DANCE HUB is designed for dancers ages 18-29 who are interested in strengthening their technique while furthering their artistic expression. In addition to taking 3 technique classes a day, students will learn new choreography, visit museums, and immerse themselves in the vibrant, artistic, Florentine community. Each dancer will be personally mentored to maximize improvement and will be carefully supervised throughout their stay in Italy on both their weekly training and weekend activities and day trips.
The first week of the intensive will be held in Florence at MaxBallet Academy, Via Maragliano 31A, 50144 Firenze.
The second and third week will be held in Agropoli, 4 hours from Florence, at ExOrto Danza, via Marco Polo, 84043 Agropoli.
Dance HUB: On the Road!
After spending one week soaking up the rich history of Florence, the group will travel together down to the city of Agropoli on the Amalfi Coast. The final two weeks of the intensive will be hosted by ExOrto Danza, directed by choreographer Piero Leccese. His dance school is dedicated to all artistic expressions. A center for training, promotion and support of theater, dance, and movement; it shares TDH INTERNATIONAL's focus on collaboration and artistic experimentation.
The final performance of the intensive will take place in the town's breaktaking Medioeval Castle as part of Summer Agropolese. The dancers will perform original choreographies created during the three week residencies by the guest artists, student choreographers, and by artistic director Giada Matteini.
