The activities and events of Collin, You Think You Dance, engages participants in a rigorous performance process: they learn complex choreography in condensed rehearsal time periods in the format of So, You Think You Can Dance. There is a culminating event formatted in style of SYTYCD to be performed December 12th, 2009 in the John Anthony Theatre located at the Spring Creek Campus. The CYTYD dancers will perform choreography and receive verbal feedback, criticism and praise from working artists in the field of dance. Student participants are given opportunities to perform a dance style in which they
are proficient as well as styles which is new to them, thus creating an opportunity for substantial growth and a need to develop fortitude. This process develops important performance and rehearsal skills applicable to
any professional dancer in any career situation.Collin College students involved in this project also perform the dance works learned during the semester for a local Collin County high school as a lecture demonstration. Collin Dancers will teach a short portion of their dance to high school dance students. This interactive event allows the community participants to experience the movement as performers, encouraging more inquiry and meaning-making in the arts. In the process, the Collin Dancers develop
teaching and communication skills by working with the community.
