Mariyah-Rose and Millicent Poovey spent their end-of-summer break in Chicago at the Inaside Chicago Dance Intensive! Mariyah-Rose won a scholarship to attend the
intensive during the last Competitive Dance Season from BravO! National Dance and Talent Competition while performing her solo Supermassiveblackhole, choreographed by Kaitlyn Mans.
Mariyah-Rose attended the intermediate classes during the intensive. When I asked about her time there, she was full of information and excitement, “My time in Chicago and at Inaside Chicago Dance
Intensive was an amazing experience. We had a total of 22 classes in 6 days with Ballet, Modern, Jazz Tech, & Repertory being some of them. Each class included a different instructor which taught
me different technique and styles. My favorite part about the Intensive was the Improvisation class because our instructor taught us that there was no wrong way to improv and it let me be creative.”
During the showcase at the end of the intensive, Mariyah-Rose got to perform some of the new combos she had learned during the week!
Millicent was in the youth portion of the dance intensive. She loved site seeing and dancing in Chicago. “The Intensive was a fun experience. I got to take 12 classes with very cool instructors. I
loved that I got to see Chicago and dance there at the same time. I’m happy that my sister got the scholarship which gave me a chance to attend it too.”
Both girls wanted to tell all the staff and instructors at the Edge Performing Arts Centre how much they appreciate all they’ve done to prepare them for all the opportunity to grow and learn in
dance and to prepare them for amazing experiences like the Inaside Chicago Dance Intensive.
