Tim Lynch, The Seattle Dance Project
The Seattle Dance Project has a significant footprint in Shoreline, having spent an entire year teaching dance to students at Parkwood Elementary School. This event is for grownups.

Building upon five seasons of critically acclaimed performance and community outreach, Seattle Dance Project today announced that it will host its first intensive workshop for dancers at Seattle’s Fremont Studios from June 21 – 24, 2012.

Led by Seattle Dance Project principals Alexandra Dickson and Betsy Cooper, along with other experts, the unique, four-day experience includes exploration of dance forms, conditioning and mind/body development.

Sessions will include ballet, modern dance, pointe, dance repertoire, building dance longevity, yoga and pilates for dancers, and more. Both Dickson and Cooper are experienced professional dancers, committed to both excellence and compassion in their instruction and to helping dancers meet and exceed their personal goals.

“There are a wide variety of workshops for dancers, but we believe this will be like no other event,” said Tim Lynch, Seattle Dance Project artistic director. “Participants will share in an exciting, nurturing environment that allows them to discover more  self-expression, self-fulfillment and passion for dance, while also challenging them to grow in technique, skill and physical development. We’re focusing on both the body and the mind.”

Participants must be 18 or older and have a minimum of three years of dance training. Sessions run from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. daily. Drop-in classes and private coaching sessions are available. All sessions will be held at the Dance Fremont studio at 4015 Stone Way North in Seattle.

Prices range from $350 for the entire four-day experience, to $75 for private coaching sessions, to $20 for drop-in classes.
