NORDC/NOBA Center for Dance announces auditions for star-studded, tuition free summer programs

Written by  New Orleans Ballet Association
The New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) and the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) will host open auditions on February 20 and 21 at The Chevron Studio, Lyons NORDC Center, for the NORDC/NOBA Center for Dance 2016 Tuition-Free Summer Intensives and Chevron Master Artist Series held in June and July. These programs are designed to give motivated students ages 9 to 18 the opportunity to study with a faculty of distinguished local and visiting guest artists representing some of the world's biggest names in dance. With lead support of Chevron, past artists have included Alonzo King LINES Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ballet Hispanico, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Limón Dance Company, San Francisco Ballet, Parsons Dance, and Stephen Petronio Company, among others.
“Chevron’s partnership with the New Orleans Ballet Association and NORDC is part of our commitment to the cultural vitality of Greater New Orleans and the Gulf Coast,” says Leah Brown, Chevron Gulf of Mexico Public Affairs Manager.  “NOBA’s free summer programs are an opportunity for local children who are passionate about dance to learn from the world’s most accomplished artists. Chevron is proud to once again support this initiative - and proud to support the Crescent City’s most promising performers.”
The NORDC/NOBA Center for Dance is pleased to announce that internationally renowned and award-winning dancer and choreographer Ronald K. Brown will join the faculty of the 2016 July Summer Intensive. “One of the most profound choreographers of his generation” (The New York Times), Brown founded his Brooklyn-based Evidence, A Dance Company in 1985 and recently premiered his sixth, critically acclaimed work on the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.  With his signature style of kinetic storytelling through African, Caribbean, modern, ballet and social dance styles, one of today’s most sought-after choreographers and master teachers will lead technique classes and choreography workshops for local youth July 6 – 26 and perform as part of the fully produced, culminating concert of the July Summer Intensive. Other artists and faculty will be named this spring.
Students will participate in a rigorous schedule of technique classes in multiple forms of dance; choreography and repertory sessions; workshops in dance history, music, health and wellness; and sessions about pursuing dance in college and beyond. The programs culminate in professionally produced performances for all participating students. To audition, it is recommended that students have at least two years of ballet training.
