Aerial or Dance Residency
Students work with a CC&Co. Teaching Artist who is also a Company Dancer generally for 6 classes. Residencies can be tailored to your school’s desires. CC&Co. has taught students in Kindergarten – 12th grade with great success. To read more visit the Arts and Science Council Artist Directory – CLICK HERE!
Four professional dancers from Caroline Calouche & Co. will perform and discuss the evolution of aerial and contemporary dance. This program includes a brief history and performances in the dance styles of classical and contemporary ballet, modern dance, jazz and musical theater jazz. The student audience will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the dancers in a structured improvisation which is one of the tools that CC&Co. uses in their collaborative choreographic process. The dancers will close the program with performances of their fascinating blend of aerial and contemporary dance on silks and trapeze (if venue allows).
1 show: $700
2 shows: $1,200 (back to back in 1 day)
