One special workshop on “Hip Hop” will be presented by the main guest artist and Atlanta based choreographer CiCi Kelley.
Her choreography has graced the legendary stage of Harlem’s, “Showtime at the Apollo” and FOX 29’s, Good Day Philadelphia.” Her choreography has also been seen on the WB’s “Pepsi Smash” and BET’s 106th and Park” with Atlanta’s very own Ying Yang Twins. She has performed with Grammy winner Lil’ Jon, Petey Pablo, and the Ying Yang Twins at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards in Miami and is in the music video,”Control Myself” with LL Cool J featuring Jennifer Lopez. CiCi has toured with LL Cool J and the Hip-Hop group, A Tribe Called West.

Students will also participate in a college fair and college scholarship audition. As an added plus dancers can also submit a piece to be featured in the Kaleidoscope showcase and receive feedback from CiCi (SOA Dance instructors will provide guidance to dancers if they do want to submit.) Finally, who wouldn’t be excited to meet other dancers from all over the State? It’s a great three days of dance education and opportunities to network.
