Dance/Opportunity – Contemporary Intensive, International Independent Study Program and The School at Steps Summer Intensive Seek Talent with International Audition Tour 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STEPS ON BROADWAY IS THE DESTINATION FOR PROFESSIONAL AND INTENSIVE DANCE TRAINING

Steps Conservatory, Summer Study NYC: A Contemporary Intensive, International Independent Study Program and The School at Steps Summer Intensive Seek Talent with International Audition Tour 

 Steps on Broadway, NYC’s legendary professional dance center committed to training and maintaining the integrity of the art form, increases their international reach with a first-time national and international audition tour. Led by newly appointed Student Programs Audition Director, Davis Robertson, under the direction of Mindy Upin Jackson, Director of Professional Training Programs, and Kate Thomas, Director of The School at Steps, a 12-city tour is underway through early Spring and offers the dedicated dancer various opportunities for study during the summer months and beyond.  Through intensive training, performance, and evaluations, these intimate curriculum-based programs, Summer Study NYC: A Contemporary Intensive, Steps Conservatory, and the International Independent Study Program, create polished, versatile dancers brimming with the confidence and enthusiasm to enter the highly competitive world of concert and commercial dance. The audition tour will also be recruiting students for The School at Steps’ Senior Summer Intensive, for aspiring professional dancers ages 15-18.

“While we are a home for local dancers to maintain their training, our carefully curated programs utilize the expansive network we have built at Steps, and open our doors to dancers from all over the world throughout the year,” explains Diane Grumet, Co-Artistic Director of Steps on Broadway. “These summer programs give dancers an important next step in their training—broadening their home studio or university training with leading choreographers and artists in the dance capital of the world that is New York City.”

Summer Study NYC: A Contemporary Intensive (ages 18 and older) is specifically designed for the dancer preparing for a professional career. This program offers intermediate and advanced dancers, one or two 4-week sessions with classes taught by world-renowned contemporary masters as well as by our illustrious faculty. This intensive is designed to strengthen technique and artistry and provide an introduction to NYC’s professional dance community. Students take 17 classes per week including technique, Steps with Contemporary Masters, Creative Tools, and Performance Skills, and build relationships with at least nine Artistic Directors and Contemporary choreographers in each session. Students from past summers have been hired by Heidi Latsky Dance, Janis Brenner & Dancers, have freelanced with Francesca Harper, and been awarded apprenticeships with Rioult Dance NY. Upon fulfilling program requirements, students receive a Certificate of Completion at their final performance.

Steps Conservatory (ages 17-24) is a two-year curriculum-based intensive program specifically designed to strengthen technique and artistry, thus preparing the dancer for a professional career in either the concert or commercial dance world. Dancers in the Conservatory take 15-18 weekly classes from our daily schedule as well as private Performance Enrichment workshops, such as vocal training, health and wellness, repertory, composition, dance history, career development, and much more. Over the two years, students build a professional network, thereby positioning themselves for future employment. The program provides an introduction to NYC’s professional dance community, not only through study but also through multiple performance opportunities throughout the four semesters. Upon fulfilling program requirements, students receive a Certificate of Completion.

International Independent Study Program (ages 18-35) is designed so that each participant has the flexibility to create their own class schedule and experience New York City’s dance community in motion. This M-1 visa program is designed for dancers and dance educators at the intermediate to professional level, who want to explore the diversity of techniques and styles Steps has to offer. To date, the program has hosted dancers from Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Argentina, United Kingdom, Spain, Morocco, Hungary, Austria, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Ukraine, Israel, Lebanon, Uzbekistan, India, South Africa, Japan, and Taiwan. Students may join the program for three, six or twelve months.

The School at Steps Summer Intensives offer a rigorous multidisciplinary curriculum for the aspiring professional dancer. A minimum of four to five years of significant ballet training is required. Students are placed by audition in either the Junior (ages 9-12) or Senior Intensive (ages 12-18) based on age and ability, each with their own set of core classes and minimum class requirements.

APAP Emerging Leadership Institute Announces 2017 Class of Participants

APAP Emerging Leadership Institute Announces 2017 Class of Participants

Rare opportunity for each participant to reflect on and develop their ideas about leadership and their own career

Washington, DC (September 9, 2016) – The Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) announces its 16th class for the Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI). ELI is an intensive two and a half-day seminar that develops critical leadership skills for emerging performing arts professionals. Each year, a new cohort is invited to participate in ELI and attend APAP|NYC, APAP’s annual members conference held in New York City every January.

“We created ELI because there is a need in the field to retain people with 3-7 years of experience and equip them with the training and tools to take the next step in their career, becoming effective leaders in the performing arts,” says, Scott Stoner, vice president of programs of APAP. “It is important to stimulate conversation and provide a forum for these young leaders to grow and think about how leadership can operate on different levels and then take that knowledge and apply it first-hand.”

Approximately 25 participants are selected each year from a wide pool of applicants and are comprised of those who work directly in the presenting and touring field which includes, but is not limited to, performing artists, presenters, managers, agents, producers and professionals who work for arts councils or service organizations. ELI is an opportunity to engage in new professional relationships, exchange ideas, and become part of an expanding network of over 400 ELI alumni.

“Year after year I am inspired by artists, managers and cultural workers who are building careers in our field. My role is to co-facilitate dialogue, introduce mechanisms for action and ignite strong relationships development among the expanding ELI alumni network,” says, Rosalba Rolon, long-time co-facilitator of the ELI program.  “What makes the ELI effective is that participants are sharing their experiences among similar-minded individuals and expanding their individual perspectives to provide strategies that may ultimately permeate their organizations.”

Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2017, APAP has been committed to leadership development in the changing ecology of the performing arts industry, providing avenues for members to expand and strengthen their leadership skills.  ELI 2017 will take place January 4-6, 2017 during the days leading up to APAP|NYC 2017 (January 6-10, 2017).

GIRLS ROCK! CAMP 2015 WILLIE MAE ROCK CAMP!! Deadlines Approaching!

Girls Rock! Camp 2015

Thank you for your interest in Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls! We’re very excited about camp this year, and we’re looking forward to receiving your application. Please read it carefully— there is a lot of information and we cannot consider incomplete or late applications. Rock on!

Si deseas una solicitud en español, por favor escribe a info@williemaerockcamp.org o llama a 347-599-0716.

NEW THIS YEAR:

Due to restrictions at our camp sites,  the camp day will end earlier this year, at 4:30 p.m. for all campers. We are looking into extended day options to provide childcare until 5:30 p.m.

Due to the need for a shorter camp day, 2015 tuition is lower than 2014 rates!

Returning Campers!!
We’ve changed our registration process for returning Girls Rock! Camp campers this year. You do not need to re-apply and then complete the enrollment form — instead you can complete this one-step registration form.

By completing this form and submitting your tuition payment by March 2, you have secured a spot in one of our Girls Rock! Camp sessions. We cannot guarantee the session you requested, but we will definitely make an effort to register your camper for their first choice. If your registration is received after the Returning Camper deadline date, March 2, then you will have to go through the Girls Rock! Camp application process.

If you’re applying for a scholarship, you’ll still need to submit the materials needed for those applications. Scroll down to Scholarship section to see how to apply! 

WHAT

Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls’ summer day camp, Girls Rock! Camp, is an intensive, six-day program featuring instrument instruction, workshops, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists, and a showcase concert. Campers receive two hours of instrument instruction each day in small groups organized by skill level and age. All classes are taught by volunteers. On the first day, campers form bands, and during daily band practice, campers write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. Campers also attend workshops on topics ranging from songwriting to sound engineering to self-defense. At the end of the week, bands perform their original song at a showcase concert.

WHEN

Session 1 will take place Monday, July 27  Saturday, August 1
Monday – Friday from 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
The Session 1 final concert will be on Saturday, August 1, at Roulette in Downtown Brooklyn.

Session 2 will take place Monday, August 17 Saturday, August 22
Monday – Friday from 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
The Session 2 final concert will be on Saturday, August 22, at Roulette in Downtown Brooklyn.

Please note that campers may not attend more than one session in the same summer and campers must be able to perform in the final showcase concert in order to attend camp.

WHERE

Session 1 will take place at Brooklyn High School of the Arts in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn; Session 2 will take place at Cathedral High School in Midtown East, Manhattan. Please keep this in mind when submitting your application and choosing your session preferences. See below for details.

Session 1
Brooklyn High School of the Arts is located in Downtown Brooklyn at 345 Dean Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue. The building is wheelchair accessible. The closest train is the Atlantic Terminal station B/D/N/Q/R/2/3/4/5 station. (For more information on transportation, please see www.mta.info or www.hopstop.com.)

Session 2
Cathedral High School is located in Midtown East, Manhattan at 350 East 56th Street at 1st Avenue. The building is wheelchair accessible. The closest trains are the E/M at Lexington Ave./53rd St., and the 4/6 trains at 51st St. (For more information on transportation, please see www.mta.info or www.hopstop.com.)

WHO MAY APPLY FOR CAMP

Girls, young women, and trans* youth who will be between the ages of 8 and 18 during the camp session may apply for camp. No experience is necessary, and you don’t have to live in New York to apply (please see below for more information about out-of-town campers). Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls welcomes campers who self-identify as female, trans, and gender non-conforming.

Note: Campers must be at least 8 years old at the time of camp to attend. No exceptions will be made. We will be offering a program for girls ages 5–7 called Rock Camp Jumpstart, which will take place the week of July 13 at Brooklyn High School of the Arts. Please contact us or visit www.williemaerockcamp.org for more information about this program!

TUITION

$550 / Full tuition – Financial assistance available.

Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations made are tax deductible and much appreciated. Donations to the Fairness Fund ensure access to Willie Mae programs by girls and young women of all income levels. (Applications fees and tuition, however, are not donations, and therefore are not tax deductible.)

REDUCED TUITION/FINANCIAL AID

Reduced tuition is available for campers from low- and moderate-income households. Applications for reduced tuition should be included with your camp application materials and the same deadlines apply (see Important Dates). For more information, see attached page.

SPECIAL SCHOLARSHIPS

We have several scholarship opportunities for prospective campers. These scholarships have been created by specific sponsors and serve primarily to recognize and support campers from specific communities. For more information on the scholarships and how to apply, CLICK HERE.

INSTRUMENT INSTRUCTION

Campers focus on one instrument to study for the week. Campers are assigned to instruments based on availability and their requests. Applicants can request guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vocals, or DJ/turntables. Please rank instruments according to your preference. If you would like to study an instrument that isn’t listed, like violin, horns, or reed instruments, please indicate that in the instrument section, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Due to the need to acquire the gear we need in advance, you cannot change your selection after you send in your application, and you cannot change the instrument you’re assigned before or during the camp session.

APPLICATION/EXPRESS YOURSELF

We ask that all prospective campers take some time to communicate why they want to be a part of Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls by creating an “Express Yourself” piece. Applicants may choose any format: a letter, a picture, a collage, a song or poem, etc. Please limit audio and video pieces to a MAXIMUM OF 3 MINUTES and make sure the piece has the applicant’s FIRST AND LAST name on it. If sending an e-mail, it should be sent as an attachment to applications@williemaerockcamp.org. The subject should read “[FIRST AND LAST NAME] EXPRESS YOURSELF.” Please note that all submitted materials become property of Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls and cannot be returned. 

Please note that applications and “Express Yourself” pieces are NOT reviewed for artistic merit in particular; instead, the “Express Yourself” piece helps the review panel get a sense of the applicant and helps assemble a camper group that is diverse in experience and perspective.

CAMPER SELECTION/NOTIFICATION

Campers are selected by a committee seeking to establish a balanced and diverse camp population in relation to instrument groups, age, race/ethnicity, economic status, geography/community, and experience. Campers are not selected on a first-come, first-served basis. We receive more applications than we have camper spots, so we will not be able to accept everyone who applies. Please be aware that we make every effort to welcome back returning campers, but we cannot guarantee spots for returning campers. Applicants who were not admitted last summer will be given high priority. Applicants who have attended camp for the past 3 years in a row may not be able to attend this summer, but will have higher priority the following summer.

Upon receipt of your application, we will send you a notice via e-mail confirming that we have received it. Notifications are sent out once a week. If you have not received a notice within 2 weeks after you send in your application, call us at 347-599-0716. Please don’t call unless you haven’t received a confirmation and it has been a full two weeks since you sent in your application! We will e-mail out notifications to every applicant, so please be sure your e-mail address is correct. Additional information about camp will be sent with acceptance letters.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY

Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national and/or ethnic origin, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, or gender identity/expression in the administration of any of its educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid, and other camp-related policies and programs, as well as volunteer and employment-related policies and activities.

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR OUT-OF-TOWN CAMPERS

Willie Mae Rock Camp is a day camp, and we do NOT provide lodging. We are able to offer limited assistance with host-family arrangements. If you are interested in contacting a prospective host family, or if you are a local family interested in hosting a camper, please let us know on your application.

IMPORTANT DATES

In an effort to help families plan their summers and still extend the opportunity to as many young people as possible, we will be doing four rounds of application review. If you are not accepted in the first round, you will be asked if you would like your application to be reconsidered during each subsequent round. Applications for both summer sessions will be reviewed in all four rounds.

#Technology #Sports #Training — The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball (for Girls and Women)

We recommend any player or student serious about bringing their skills to the highest levels to consider saving their money and acquiring  this technology. There are even special basketballs available designed for women. We applaud the creators for this valuable addition to sports technology and training.

The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball measures and diagnoses key skills critical to building confidence, versatility, and success in the game. Utilizing nine sensors inside the ball, it delivers real-time shooting and ball-handling feedback including shot speed, backspin and arc measurements, to an iPhone or iPod touch via Bluetooth Low Energy, giving players of any skill level the ability to improve important muscle memory skills more efficiently and effectively.

The small suite of sensors inside the regulation size and weight basketball measures skill precisely and quickly utilizes that data to prescribe proven, personalized methods to improve shooting mechanics, shot release speed, shooting arc, power dribbling, hand-speed, mental coordination, and many other skills that have been traditionally impossible to measure.

94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball Named as CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award Honoree in Three Categories

International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball in the Embedded Technologies; Gaming Hardware & Accessories; and Health & Fitness categories.

The 94Fifty App is optimized for iOS 7 with a fresh, clean design and gives athletes the ability to share their achievements with friends, family and coaches via social media.

94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball is available for $299.95 starting today at Apple Retail Stores and online at shop.94fifty.com. The 94Fifty App is available for free from the App Store.

 94Fifty is the Official Smart Basketball of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and has been endorsed by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).

94Fifty Sensor Basketball

Product Information

Overview:

The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball measures muscle memory that the human eye can’t see, learns the strengths and weaknesses of players at any level, adapts as the player improves, and provides basic, intermediate, and advanced level training to build better shooting and ballhandling skills – fast.

Regulation Ball with Free Downloadable App.

The sophisticated technology is shrunk and completely concealed within the regulation size, weight, spin and bounce basketball.    A free downloadable app lets users choose from hundreds of different options to improve skills.

Instant Feedback

Visual and audio voice feedback will correct flaws in milliseconds on every shot and dribble.  By giving instantaneous feedback, players can quickly learn how to adjust mechanics or address flaws with completely unbiased data.  Let anyone in the house become an expert trainer.

Adaptive Workouts

The app adjusts as players improve and increases skill difficulty from playground up to pro level.   Players begin at the Playground level and work through a choice of ball-handling, shooting, or total player workouts. Each level adds new drills and more difficult metrics to move onto the next level.

Develop Your Own Skills at Your Own Pace

Whatever skill is most important for the player, 94Fifty can measure it and suggest ways to improve.  The free downloadable app will count dribbles, dribble force, shot release speed, shot arc, and backspin for whatever skill the player wants to improve.

Head to Head Competition

Automated, real-time scoring and leaderboards determine the winner for up to five players.  Pick from four different competitive games, then choose from up to 50 drills to see which player has the best skills.  See who can get the most dribbles in 20 seconds, or earn bonus points for who can dribble fast with dribble power.  Shooting competitions give bonus points for shooting with better shot arc or faster shot release speed. Current leaderboards display winners, and historical win-loss standings let’s users claim bragging rights.   Add Headstart points to make things interesting between age groups.

See Your Progress

Track daily and all-time bests.  Sets goals for more than 50 drills and competitions.  Let small successes every day lead to long-term achievement.

Highlights:

  • Take it anywhere. Completely mobile Bluetooth connections with 90 Foot (30 Meter) range from the ball to mobile device.
  • Easy on/off.   Dribble the ball a few times to activate, the ball will put itself to sleep with no activity to conserve power.
  • Shot Arc Analyzer. Soften your shot for more consistency by learning to shoot with ideal arc.
  • Shot Release Speed Timer.  Increase scoring opportunities with more shot attempts by always shooting at game speed.
  • Shot Backspin Analyzer. Improve accuracy by developing a strong wrist for better follow through and a shooters touch.
  • Dribble Power Meter. Become more versatile by learning to dribble harder under pressure with either hand.
  • Wireless Rechargeable Battery.  simply place it on the charging pad and it watch the blue light turn on.
  • Rugged, weather proof, indoor/outdoor synthetic leather skin.

UBW CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Please call us at (718) 398-4537 to discuss your specific goals, needs and ideas.

Artistic / Creative

BATTY RAPS
This unique, fun workshop developed from the acclaimed UBW repertory work, Batty Moves, which celebrates unique individuality through the tradition of bragging. Participants in this workshop are invited to develop and perform their own raps alongside UBW dancers.
Class length: TBD

DANCE FOR EVERY BODY
“Dance for Every Body” embraces the idea of each individual having a unique and powerful contribution to make. The goal is for “every body” to find their level of challenge and comfort and partake according to their abilities, and to appreciate the groups’ diversity as an attribute to their community. This is a movement class designed for the community so no prior dance experience is needed. Participants explore UBW’s technique with close attention to the use of breath, weight, call and response and polyrhythm.
Workshop length: 90 minutes

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
UBW’s technique class starts with a warm-up that prepares the participants for full-out dancing in the UBW style. The second half of the class focuses on our movement style and may include improvisation phrases from repertory and/or vocal work. Technique classes operate best when participants are working at approximately the same level.
Levels: beginning or intermediate-advanced
Ages: high school and beyond
Limit: 30-40 participants depending on the size of space
Dress: loose, comfortable clothing or dancewear; bare feet
Technical requirements: clean and smooth sprung wood dance floor
Music requirement: Professional percussionist
Class length: 90 minutes

BREAKS, BEATS AND BATTLES
This class is a continuation of “How We Got to the Funk,” and explores African American social dances of the ’80s and ’90s such as hip hop and breaking. No experience is needed so come ready to get down!
Technical requirement: microphone and CD player
Class length: 90 minutes

IN THE SPIRIT (Marjani Forte)
This is an exploration of dance in the frame of praise and worship and is accessible for participants of all ages, backgrounds and skill level. Praise dance is a communal art form, and a positive open mind is all that’s required. We highlight dance as a language, using our bodies as instruments of praise, ushering ourselves and our viewers into a deeper sense of worship. Praise ministry leaders are especially encouraged to participate as tools for generating movement and guiding dancers through a creative process are provided. Ministry leaders leave with a hard copy of the workshop outline, which includes the processes and tools shared. We begin and end in simultaneous interfaith prayer. All spiritual practices are welcomed.
Class length: TBD

DANCING FROM THE INSIDE OUT (Samantha Speis)
Taking a non-traditional and non-linear approach to movement, this workshop takes place on the floor with a sequence of movements that encourages awareness and enhances the connection between mind, body and spirit. Rooted in kinesthetic awareness, we explore concepts of full-bodied movement with subtle dynamic qualities, integrating the breath, spatial patterning, core stability, ease of the joints and fluidity/mobility of the extremities in conjunction with the floor. Treating the floor as a partner and collaborator allows us to open our senses to a world of endless movement possibilities. Emphasis is placed on developing a foundation that supports a greater expansion through space with clarity and efficiency. You learn to work from within to cultivate deeper physical connections while discovering your individual and unique voice.
Class length: TBD

CONTACT IMPROVISATION/PARTNERING: BUILDING TRUST THROUGH PROCESS (Samantha Speis)
Movement is the essence of freedom. Contact improvisation is a movement language based on the physical principles of touch, momentum, weight sharing and following a shared point of contact. It is an honoring of every moment. Through trust building exercises, you learn to surrender and stay true to what is happening in the moment. We delve into movement conversations that require you to actively listen and speak with all of your senses. This workshop explores falling, rolling, stillness, connecting through focus, counterbalance, lifting using minimal effort, centering and integration of breath, and being attentive to our partner (s) and surroundings.
Class length: TBD

LIGHTING FOR DANCE (Susan Hamburger)
This workshop is an exploration into the world of lighting and composition with practical examples of dance lighting.
Technical requirements: Microsoft Powerpoint, a projector and a screen
Workshop length: 90 minutes

Arts Management

BASICS OF ARTS MANAGEMENT (Jana La Sorte)
A discussion of arts management practices, perspectives and tools.
Technical requirements: Microsoft Powerpoint, a projector and a screen
Workshop length: 1-2 hours (may be condensed)
