Now on its 23rd year, Steps’ an­nual Sum­mer Dance Work­shop gets un­der­way this month, of­fer­ing new elec­tives to com­ple­ment the stan­dard tech­ni­cal dance classes. Aside from in­ten­sive tu­to­ri­als in clas­si­cal bal­let, mod­ern, jazz, tap, street dance, part­ner­ing classes, and pointe work, Steps now of­fers mod­ules on Stage Makeup, Build­ing a Per­sonal Brand on So­cial Media, and Dance Ré­sumé 101—all im­por­tant and rel­e­vant tools in a world in­creas­ingly dom­i­nated by so­cial media. To im­prove phys­i­cal fit­ness, Pi­lates for Dancers is also avail­able, along with work­shops on im­pro­vi­sa­tion, ex­pres­sion, and com­po­si­tion. “We take pride in be­ing a pro­gres­sive school that is sen­si­tive to the needs of dancers in this gen­er­a­tion,” ex­plains man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Sofia Zo­bel-El­izalde. “We would like to pro­vide our dancers all the tools they can use to re­ally move ahead in their ca­reer. Today, that means not just be­ing able to dance, but be­ing able to mar­ket one­self as an artist as well.” Fol­low­ing Steps tra­di­tion, stu­dents who com­plete the work­shop take part in a dance con­cert where they can demon­strate their newly ac­quired or pol­ished skills. En­ti­tled “LIVE… LOVE… DANCE!” the con­cert will be held at the Cul­tural Cen­ter of the Philip­pines Main The­ater on May 28, 2017.
