PRESENTED BY CAL POLY ARTS

Description:

This three day/four night festival, running August 8-11, 2012, is filled with dynamic classes, workshops, and performances for intermediate and advanced dancers, ages 12 and up. Classes range from ballet and contemporary to yoga and hip-hop.

The first objective of the Festival is to provide an incredible opportunity for dancers to dance, share, and learn through collaborative, interactive workshops and activities facilitated by leading professional dancers and choreographers from across America.

Secondly, JumpBrush allows an extraordinary behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of dance for community enthusiasts.

San Francisco’s Joe Goode Performance Group will take part in a JumpBrush “Reverse Residency,” offering San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria County dancers an opportunity to audition for the chance to perform for Joe Goode, alongside his company, during the closing night “JUMPBRUSH in Concert” event held at the Performing Arts Center. This is a unique experience not to be missed.

For over 26 years, choreographer Joe Goode has been recognized internationally as an innovator in contemporary dance theatre, exhibiting an unflagging commitment to visual experimentation. The company’s performance and Reverse Residency will be a highlight of the JumpBrush Pacific Coast Dance Convergence Festival.

JumpBrush will open with the “Critiqued Opening Night Studio Showcase,” which offers studios and dance groups participating in JumpBrush 2012 an opportunity to show their work for critique by professional adjudicators Joe Goode and members of his company. Two pieces from the “Opening Night Showcase” will be performed again on closing night at “JUMPBRUSH in Concert.”

Youth Workshop

HOPBRUSH is a youth workshop offered for ages 8-12 and will consist of two one-hour classes and a one-hour tour of the Cal Poly Performing Arts facilities during the afternoon of Saturday, August 11th. The classes offered will be in Modern and Musical Theater.
