TDH TEEN HUB

overview

Teen HUB is an intensive dance training program for high school students, ages 14-17 interested in strengthening their technical abilities while honing performance skills. The program runs for two weeks in the beautiful town of Agropoli in the Cilentan region on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. For a week the students of Teen HUB will have the opportunity to train alongside the artists and dancers of Toscana Dance HUB giving them an opportunity to network and learn about life in college and as professionals in the field. Although the program offers the opportunity to participate in fun activities in the beach community of Agropoli, it is not a leisure program and it requires young dancers who are extremely committed, dedicated and are able to work both independently and as part of a group.

The program offers a series of performance opportunities and culminates in a final interdisciplinary project, conceived and rehearsed during the residency in Agropoli.
