Dance Modern Lab Master Class Series: Veronica Chapp

  1. Friday September 21 12:00pm
Dance Building, Betty Pease Studio Theater

Veronica Chapp graduated from the University of Michigan and studied dance at several premier studios across the country. Chapp has her MA in dance/movement therapy and counseling. She has worked professionally in the United States and Europe as a choreographer, teacher, performer, judge, makeup artist, and costume designer for more than 20 years. She has danced with the Switzerland chapter of "Culture Shock," an international hip-hop company, "Culture Shock" in San Diego, and Urban FX. She has also danced and choreographed for the "New Dance Company" based in Switzerland, and “Tanz Emotion Dance Academy,” based in Freiburg, Germany.

Each Modern Lab session features a different guest artist teaching a master class and sections from their repertory. This panorama of the contemporary dance field is presented to broaden the students’ awareness of potential career possibilities. Each guest artist conducts a 30-minute technique class/warm-up and then teaches repertory that is performed by the class. In the final 15 minutes, faculty coordinator Bill De Young conducts a Q & A with each artist, discussing their career; their recommendations for transitioning from student to professional, and what they look for when they audition dancers for their projects.

This event supported in part by the EXCEL Lab.
