The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theater is hosting a two-week summer intensive at the Pamela Trokanski Dance workshop, in conjunction with several other summer programs. As as the nonprofit dance company looks forward to its upcoming 29th season, it is focusing on community outreach for training dancers who might someday join the troupe, dancing with either the contemporary company or the ballet repertory company that is in the works.

The two-week intensive will run from Monday, July 22, through Saturday, Aug. 3. The intensive includes training in classical ballet, pointe, ballet mime, classical repertory, contemporary technique, partnering (both traditional and non-traditional) as well as a survey of other dance and fitness/flexibility techniques such as jazz, African, Pilates, yoga and more.

Additional topics, the “how to’s” of dance, also will be covered, including stage makeup and hair, nutrition, audition etiquette and performance skills. The two-week intensive culminates in a two-evening performance, showcasing the repertory learned during the intensive.

Tentative faculty include Taylor Herrera (Royal Academy of Dance training), Heather Wysong (Royal Academy of Dance, Cecchetti, Vaganova), Pamela Trokanksi (contemporary, barre, partnering) and Laurel Tennant (Boston Ballet), among others.

Placement auditions for the ballet and contemporary intensives will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 23, at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, 2720 Del Rio Place. The audition fee of $15 will be applied to the cost of tuition, for students who enroll.

As part of its community outreach program, PTDT is hosting “Moving Words: The Duet of Writing and Dance.” This one-week camp is designed for children ages 6 to 12. The camp, combines dance activities and writing poems and songs for a physical and academic enrichment program that’s exciting and fun.

Taught by Cindy Robinson and Trokanski, both of whom hold current California teaching credentials, this is a week that not only promises experiences in dance but also an opportunity for children to strengthen and build on what they’ve learned in the past school year.

For children who sometimes “forget” learned concepts during the summer, it’s a camp that delivers an educational experience without feeling like school, Trokanski said. The morning is full of movement and writing activities and the afternoon has movement games, art, dance on DVDs and student performances of their morning’s work.

For more information on either of these programs, call the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop at 530-756-3949 or visit www.trokanski.com.
