daCi Michigan Tour – Audition Rescheduled

New daCi Audition Date: Saturday, Feb. 22 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM

Open to dancers 2nd grade through High School

Tanner Dance has been invited to participate in the Dance and the Child International (daCi) USA, “Anchored in Hope: Expanding Horizons” gathering, July 27 – August 2, 2020 in Holland, Michigan. The beautiful campus of Hope College will provide a multitude of dance experiences including daily skills and cultural classes, multi-generational creative classes, and performing opportunities for ages 7 to adult.

This national gathering is an opportunity for children, young people, and adults to come together for a culturally and artistically rich, collaborative environment for three action-filled days. Participants will explore, create, and observe through daily classes which will include technique (Western and non-Western) and collaborative multi-generational choreography. Participants will create dance works in collaborative classes, learn new dances in cultural and world classes, and view or perform dances in a professional theatre each evening. Classes will be taught by dance educators and instructors from across the country. They will share their expertise and passion for dance and provide enriching, age appropriate, creative, and culturally-authentic experiences. The daCi participants will enjoy an evening gathering and dinner on Wednesday as well as a final banquet on Saturday evening.
