Building relationships in the community through arts programming, master classes and performances is a mission of the Institute of Music & Dance. In particular, IMD has engaged with Performing-Arts- based high schools including Renaissance, Cass Tech, DSA, Martin Luther King, Arts Academy in the Woods, Novi H.S. and Harrison H.S.
This summer, the 44th annual Festival of Dance will take place from August 12-17th. This year it will be a full day program (9:00am – 6:00pm) offering three technique classes per day and rehearsals of choreography by guest artists as well as Marygrove College dance faculty. A showcase performance will take place in the Marygrove College Theatre at the conclusion of the program.
We are pleased to announce that Gina Ellis, Director of Dance at Renaissance H.S., has informed me that Renaissance H.S., along with an outside donor, will subsidize 11 Renaissance dancers to attend the 44th Festival of Dance.
IMD welcomed many new faces at the scholarship audition for the program. A number of them have already confirmed their attendance.
We look forward to a successful week of dance education.
