Wayne State University's Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre & Dance is hosting our first Summer Intensive in DETROIT!! SIX DAYS of rigorous training in the movement and performance practices of Shaina Branfman and Bryan Strimpel BAIRA. The Intensive is designed for serious dancers age 12 through professional adult (level I: 12-13, level II: 14-16, level III: 17+). With a focus on contemporary floor work, partnering, technique, physical conditioning, and self-awareness, BSDI offers practices for the personal and professional development of dedicated contemporary dance artists. Participants will receive an in-depth experience with BAIRA’s choreographic process, learning company repertoire and performing at Wayne State University’s Maggie Allesee Studio Theatre. This intensive promotes dance practice as life practice, and offers dancers the opportunity to experience how this artform can transform the way they interact with the way they interact with the world.
