Summer 2018

 

POWER HOUR SUMMER INTENSIVE 

NEW FORMAT!!!

This Intensive will target muscles used to jump higher, enhance precision and build stamina specific to Irish dance.  Dancers will be able to take their dance to a higher level, with an increased ability to apply teacher suggestions and corrections throughout the year. Each student who pre-registers for a minimum of 4 weeks of this class will receive a personalized plan for at-home exercises, designed to enhance benefits as part of a total program. Recommended for all motivated dancers, age 9 and older.  Younger students may join the class upon teacher approval.

This Summer Intensive is also open to NRSID parents who want to build muscle tome while spending time with their child; no previous dance experience needed!

Thursdays, 4:30-5:30pm

 

CHAMP CAMP – NEW!

This camp is designed to prepare Ard Grad students to successfully compete in Special Trophy, AG Award, and Championship entry categories in the 2018-19 school year.  Students in this class will focus on learning and refining the dances needed for these competitions: Reel, Contemporary Set Dance, and Traditional Set Dance.  Champ Camp is open to Ard Grad and Craobh Grad students.

Mondays, 7:00-8:30pm

 

CHAMP CAMP STRETCH – NEW!

Go that extra mile and cool down with stretches designed to heighten that Champion level kick and create a beautiful range of motion in jumps!

Mondays, 8:30-9:00pm

 

PRE-SCHOOL, NEW BEGINNER & BUN GRAD CLASSES

CÉILÍ COMPETITION TEAMS

For Ullm, MG & AG students interested in competing as part of a 4-Hand, 6-Hand and/or 8-Hand team during the 2018-19 school year.  Participants will develop specialized skills needed for a céilí team they can be proud of. Enrollees will be grouped by age and skill level, and final competition team assignments will be coordinated upon completion of the 8-week session.  Each dancer must commit to practicing with their assigned team throughout the school year as well as attending Regional Championships in October, Philadelphia Open Championships in December, and North American Open Championships in February. (There is a minimum class enrollment in order for these classes to be held, factoring in ages & levels.)

Tuesdays, 7:30-8:30pm

 

SKILLS & DRILLS – NEW FORMAT!

Summer Session’s Skills & Drills will work to eliminate any gaps in basic technique and will introduce dancers to new skills, while having fun with NRSID friends.  These sessions will prepare students for some of the more complicated steps in their classes in the upcoming year.  Students in this class drill a LOT of Irish dance skills in a short period of time.  Due to this intensity, students who participate in Skills & Drills are often able to advance more quickly through levels and more challenging steps.

Enrollment is based on class level during the 2017-18 school year.  If in doubt of which class to attend, please ask.

·        Ullm Soft Shoe, Wednesdays, 4-5pm

·        Ullm Hard Shoe, Wednesdays, 5-6pm

·        MG/AG Soft Shoe, Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30pm

·        MG/AG Hard Shoe, Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30pm

 

SKILLS & DRILLS STRETCH – NEW!

Round out your summer training program and cool down with stretches designed to heighten your kick and create a beautiful range of motion across all steps and levels!  Stretching is more effective post-workout, so the timing of this supplement will allow a student’s efforts to be of maximum benefit. 

These sessions are also a great supplement to Champ Camp Stretch & Power Hour Summer Intensives.  Adding extra stretch time throughout the week enables dancers to achieve even more noticeable results!

·        Ullm Stretch, Wednesdays, 6-6:30pm  (Directly following Ullm Hard Shoe Skills & Drills)

·        MG/AG Stretch, Wednesdays, 8:30-9pm  (Directly following MG/AG Skills & Drills)

 

PERFORMING COMPANY SUMMER DAY CAMP – NEW & IMPROVED!

Each year we make a serious effort to improve upon the previous year’s program, and the 2018-19 School Year is no exception!  During PC Summer Camp, dancers will learn ALL NEW material.  This will freshen up our performances and create excitement for audiences and PC members alike.

School year practices will then be to refine and polish these dances, not to learn steps.  This will allow us to start the year with new choreography that our dancers can perfect and be proud of!

PC Summer Camp is mandatory for membership in the NRSID 2018-19 Performing Company*.  We understand that summer schedules can be busy, so some absences are allowed if other requirements are met.  Please contact Holly with specific concerns and/or for details.

*Team assignments should be based on 2017-18 class levels unless otherwise notified.
