THE MOVEMENT PROJECT
PRE-PROFESSIONAL SUMMER INTENSIVE AUDITION
IPAC is partnering with The Movement Project and hosting an audition for their Summer Intensive! The Movement Project is a professional, non-profit modern dance company located in Cleveland. Their Summer Intensive is a pre-professional program for ages 12-18 that will take place July 29-Aug 3.
This program will focus on modern-contemporary dance, ballet, improvisation, composition/choreography, injury prevention, and somatic practices (pilates/yoga). In addition to movement courses, the program includes resume building, dance on film, marketing and auditions. As part of the marketing course, each dancer will receive professional dance action shots for their portfolios.
To conclude the program, students will have an opportunity to participate in our SummerWorks performance! For more details, check out http://www.themovementproject.org/summer19/ .
There will be a sign up sheet located at the studio or you may message us via Facebook or email to sign up. Dancers may be 11 years old at the time of the audition if they turn 12 by July 29th.
This is open to all dancers! You do not have to be a current student at IPAC to attend the audition, all are welcome!
OPEN TO ALL IPAC STUDENTS & PARENTS!
Certified Athletic Trainer, Abbey Russell, will be visiting IPAC to share a presentation on Health, Nutrition, & Injury Prevention. Abbey is currently specializing in Performing Arts Medicine which makes her the perfect candidate to educate our dancers! We want our dancers continue to work hard and progress while putting their health and well-being first. It is our hope that attendees will take away key information that will prevent injury and promote a long, healthy dance career.
MEET MISS ABBEY!
Abbey Russell is an experienced Certified Athletic Trainer. She currently holds the position of Head Athletic Trainer at Manchester High School. She obtained her Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training from The University of Akron in 2011, then went on to receive a Master’s of Science degree in Kinesiology from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2013. While at UNCG, Abbey worked with the Division I Athletics department providing medical care for various teams, as well as assisting with the cheerleading and dance teams and dance majors enrolled at the university. In the fall of 2016, Abbey was hired by Summa Health as an Athletic Trainer, where she continues to work with high school athletes. As a former pre-professional dancer, Abbey was always interested in working with dancers and other performing artists, so she began further education in 2017 by enrolling in a post-graduate certification for Performing Arts Medicine at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. This is the final semester of the program, and Abbey is looking forward to beginning a career, hoping to bring awareness and health and wellness care to the performing arts population!
