For the 2019 SHIFT Dance Intensive, Director Kelsey Ang invited internationally-renowned Guest Artists Joseph Davis and Haley Heckethorn, company members of LA-based BODYTRAFFIC, for a week-long immersion of contemporary dance. Named “the company of the future” by The Joyce Theater Foundation, one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch,” and “Best of Culture” by the Los Angeles Times, BODYTRAFFIC is internationally recognized for its high quality of work.
24 dancers from Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand took classes in ballet, contemporary, BODYTRAFFIC repertoire and creation where they were challenged and inspired to explore movement, develop their technique and be creative. This fun and exciting week culminated in a showing celebrating the growth of the dancers with family and friends.
