WHAT IS ITDP?
This summer qualified Theatre & Dance students ages 18+ have the opportunity of travel to the birthplace of theatre, where they will join teachers and students from Greece to participate in intensive seminars, conducted by distinguished American and International faculty. We have a limited number of spots for students 16-17. All students under 18 must attend with their own chaperone.
Prior to this current re-imagining and revival that places emphasis on theatre, the International Dance Project held five successful summer ballet & dance seminars in Boston, Ancient Olympia, and the City of Athens in the 1980s & 1990s, under the direction of Stephanie Mavrides and David Drummond.
ITDP: Greece 2019 served as our inaugural summer project. Fifteen students ages of 16-22 spent three days in Athens and two weeks on the island of Paros. They completed seminars in Ancient Greek Theatre & Dance, Choro Drama, Greek Folk Dance, Shakespeare & Text, Suzuki & Heightened Text, Acting for Film, Improvisation, Cold Reading Workshop, Monologue Coaching, Laban Movement for the Actor, Musical Theatre Dance, Ballet, & Latin Ballroom Styles.
International Theatre & Dance Project under International Dance Project promises to provide a high level of theatre & dance instruction, personalized attention, as well as cultural immersion within the Greek community. The emphasis of the International Theatre & Dance Project’s curriculum is on ensemble and individual student coaching. Class levels are intermediate through professional.
