Contemporary Crash Course

Posted on July 16, 2012 by Jennifer Stahl

Most summer intensives are winding down this month. If you're looking to tack on an extra week, but want to do something a bit funkier than Giselle variations, check out BalletLab Chicago. The contemporary ballet workshop, led by choreographers Paige Cunningham Caldarella and Emily Stein, takes place July 30 to August 3 at Visceral Dance Center in Chicago. After morning technique classes, dancers will learn new choreography to be performed in an informal showing on the last day. And there's a bonus for Chicago-based professionals: The workshop doubles as an audition for upcoming shows with both Caldarella and Stein. See balletlabchicago.com
