The Summer Dance Intensive is presented through a partnership between CES, the Department of Theatre and Dance and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences as part of an eight-month project with the celebrated hip-hop dance company, RHAW (Rennie Harris Awe-Inspiring Works). As part of the project with RHAW, choreographer Rennie Harris will create a new work, “Love American Style!” which is set to premiere at FSU in September 2013.
This project is partially supported by a grant from Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour, a program developed and funded by the Heinz Endowments; the William Penn Foundation; the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency; and the Pew Charitable Trusts, administered by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation. CES is supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive, and is sponsored in part by the Allegany Arts Council with funds from MSAC. Funding for MSAC is also provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
