In a dance studio on the University of Colorado campus, graduate student Jessica Page called out a sequence of action verbs for her class of dancers to interpret through movement.
It was choreographed chaos as middle- and high-schoolers at the spring break dance camp reacted uniquely to the commands including “scatter” and “swim,” before they “wobbled” or “whirled.” The 10 dancers, ranging in experience, then coalesced for a synced jazz dancing performance and a playful hip-hop finale.
Instructors from the CU theater and dance department host the annual “Dancing into Spring Break” workshops for young people who want to refine their technique to try out for pom squads, who want to learn a new type of dance or who just feel inspired by “Glee” and other high school musical shows.
