We at Dean College are very excited to be hosting the New England Dance Intensive and the New England Musical Theatre Intensive. 15-18 years old students interested in studying dance and musical theatre in college will benefit from attending one of the two-week intensive. Here are what the program administrators have to say:
Julianne Pedersen O’Brien, Summer Dance Intensive:
I am excited to bring Jay T Jenkins to Dean’s New England Summer Dance Intensive! Not only will students train with New England’s best area faculty and university programs, but now they will have 3 inspiring days with Jay T. Jay T Jenkins is a special guest artist with the emphasis on the word special. Why is he so special? He created the jazz funk dance style. He is an internationally known choreographer who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Salt N’Pepper, and Prince. He is a on faculty at steps on broadway, Mountclaire University, and the Alvin ailey dance theatre. And, as if all that isn’t enough, he is an alumnae of Dean college.
This summer we bring back one of our own to train dancers who may become one of our own.
David Krasner, Summer Musical Theatre Intensive:
The musical theatre intensive has three goals.
- To prepare students with audition material, both songs and monologue, for their college auditions. Students will leave confident about their applications in musical theatre.
- To provide a college experience in musical theatre, a preview of what it’s like to be on a campus studying musical theatre.
- To connect students to many New England musical theatre teachers, so that they might bond with teachers as they think of applying to various schools.
Other faculty joining us this Summer have experience teaching at Boston Conservatory, Boston University, Harvard University. Brown University, Dean College, Salve Regina with more being added!
