American Festival for the Arts Choreographic Experience

Through an 18-year collaboration with the American Festival for the Arts, Level 8 students  have the opportunity to work with young composers in producing an original work that is performed during the summer. This "world-premiere" is an invaluable experience offering students the chance to explore the techniques and challenges of creating, rehearsing and performing short pieces of original choreography.
