The Lake Tahoe Dance Connection (LTDC) brings in professional dancers and choreographers from Broadway, Los Angeles, and the Joffrey Ballet to South Lake Tahoe for a weekend of dance, professional instruction, and fun. The second annual Lake Tahoe Dance Connection at the Lake Tahoe Community College is a truly unique opportunity for dancers in and around the Tahoe Basin. The dates are August 12 – 16.
Classes can be purchased through LTCC’s CONNECT Community Education website. Register for all 5 days, single days, or single classes.
Dance studios that bring 10 or more dancers will receive a 20% discount. LTDC is open to a variety of age groups and will be offering classes in Ballet, Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Musical Theater (Broadway), all at an intermediate level. Visit our website at www.laketahoedanceconnection for more details, registration and biographies on our amazing instructors.
The event is broken down into two sections. First is the “Dance Camp” (August 12-14), where students study technique in Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop dance styles. The dance camp features several educational discussions, including nutrition, maintaining your body, and how to become a professional dancer. Dance camp will conclude each day with an on-stage performance in LTCC’s Duke Theatre.
The “Weekend Intensive” experience features dance professionals brought in from around the country who will instruct classes in a variety of dance styles, including: Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, and Musical Theatre/Broadway. The weekend intensive also includes a quality nutritious lunch each day, along with a souvenir upon check-in.
Each day, dancers will be led through a guided warm-up and then break into groups according to age – Junior, Teen, High School, and Adult – to experience master classes catered to their level. Cost for the event ranges depending on what your interested in doing. You can sign up for both sections of the event together at a discount, separately, or pay for single days or even single classes.
