Are you passionate about creating and choreography?
LIV Free: The Experience is a perfect summer educational experience for young creators who dream of being choreographers one day (ages 12-18).
Spend 6 days and 6 nights in Chicago this summer!
Work alongside TRIBE Dance Faculty and 21 other young creators
to put together an end-of-the-week performance
guaranteed to inspire your audience.
Learn behind-the-scene trades like lighting, sound/video editing, costuming and more. Collaborate with the group to develop a theme and overall concept to be presented to your audience.
Develop your choreography skills in classes designed to challenge and engage personal artistry and expression. Participants will set a solo on another young creator as well as work collectively with their Creative Guide to develop a group piece.
Participants will perform this group piece as well as a solo choreographed for them by a fellow creator at a professional theater space in downtown Chicago Friday, July 31 at 8 pm.
Attendees will keep their dance skills refined by
participating in daily technique classes.
This is a fully immersive creative experience.
Availability is limited.
What will my week look like?
Trail Blazers arrive to Chicago and are picked up by the LIV Free Staff and are brought to The Creator's Pad where they will meet the week's creative team, including the rest of the Young Creators. Once everyone gets settled into the week's pad, we will head to the grocery store as a group. Young Creators will want to plan their week's needs before arriving to Chicago. Our creative guides will be available to help with any last-minute planning and cooking needs.
Let's start this week together by discussing personal goals for the end-of-the-week show. At this time, formal introductions and the first creator meeting will take place at “The Pad”, followed by guided research and influencer history after a tour of the theatre, we'll call home for the week. Music editing, planning & inspiration workshops will kick off this fulfilling week. The night will conclude with a choreography intent discussion designed to propel you into day three.
Participants will start their day in a Ballet Technique class. After class, the group will cool down in the "communicating your intent" workshop; an open group discussion. Explore your creative voice during in-studio work time. here you will develop solo & group creations. Jump into a video editing workshop to teach you the ins and outs of making dance videos. To wrap up the day, creators will be guided through improvisation techniques to assist the development of choreographic skills. The night will conclude with a choreography intent discussion designed to propel you into day four.
Be inspired mid-week with a contemporary/Phrasing class. Open up to the group as everyone shares and explores the ideas of "Who we are as Artists". Put your thoughts into movement with more In-studio work on solo & group creations. A Prep & planning meeting will help you be most successful during our video shoot at an outdoor location. From here creators travel back to "The Pad" for a Video editing workshop to help finalize your digital creations. The night will conclude with a choreography intent discussion designed to propel you into the final day of creation.
The physicality of progressing through your work will be implemented in a challenging Progressions & technique class to start your day. From there, let's cool down with a group yoga class.
Time is of the essence, creators move into the last block of In-studio hours to work on solo & group creations. Let's support each other while you present your solo creations to your TRIBE of co-creators. Scrub-a-dub-dub, group cleaning in the tub.
Now let's celebrate!! Creator family social at “The Pad”.
It's Show Day Y'all! Meet at the theater for group Warm-up before heading into an interactive spacing & lighting tech rehearsal. Let's shake off the nerves during the full dress run of the show.
