cora dance apprenticeship program
Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance Apprentice Company is a select group of extremely dedicated, sophisticated and highly trained high school dancers interested in serious experience performing professionally. Apprentice Company members perform at youth-centered events as well as more formal performances alongside the professional company Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance, both locally and on tour. The Apprentice Company's repertoire is based on archived work of the SH/CD professional company as well as new work in development. Works range from solo to group work; shorter/showcase-length work to full evening length mountings. Apprentice and professional dancers work together for select projects, presenting informal showings, open rehearsals and formal concerts throughout the season. All photos by Steve Pisano.
