New High School Summer Writing and Dance Programs

Sarah Lawrence College is offering two new programs – one in writing, one in dance – for high school students this summer. The deadline for registration is June 24. Both programs will be taught by members of the Sarah Lawrence faculty and include the College’s signature one-on-one student-teacher conferences.

Writing Across Your Life: From the Personal to the Public” will give aspiring writers and students who just want to write better an opportunity to express themselves through fiction, poetry, essays and more. Workshops, round-table discussions, and a private conference each week with the instructor, are all part of the program. Open to students in grades 10, 11 and 12, the class will meet Mondays and Thursdays from 7 – 9 p.m., July 7 – August 1.

Classes in contemporary ballet, Afrohopatazz (a fusion of West African, Afro-Caribbean and hip hop), improvisation, choreography and performance make up “SummerDance,” a program for students in grades 10, 11 and 12 seeking immersion in the technical, expressive, and creative components of dance. “SummerDance” will be held Monday through Friday, July 18 – 29 from 11 – 5. Participants will attend selected performances in New York City.
