What to expect:
A great benefit of IMPACT is the chance for students to experience life in New York City and Greenwich Village. The cost of living in the city is high. The activities fee students pay for the workshop covers only the primary cost of participating in the evening and weekend events and does not cover personal expenses. Students should budget for enough money to last the entire time they will be participating in the workshop. Students are encouraged to discuss expenses and decide upon a budget with their families prior to arriving in New York City.
Participants take part in workshops throughout the day in their own areas of interests and also across disciplines, many with emphasis in understanding technology involved in enhancing the range of artistic expression.
Workshops for Multimedia & Arts Technology
These workshops systematically explore web developing media for use in performance. Students will learn: image processing, animated images, sound file management, digital audio recording and editing, video and movie processing, and DVD production. Elements of live performance multimedia production will be introduced for application in the afternoon workshop.
Workshops for Dance and Movement
Concepts of modern dance incorporate floorwork, traveling combinations, improvisation, and composition studies. Participants will understand the importance of proper alignment, breath support, flow and will increase their ability to move with passion. Participants will be challenged to find new ways of moving, to expand their movement potential, and to develop their unique style within the framework of the workshops and final production.
Workshops for Music and Sound
Participants focus on integrative and collaborative techniques.
Workshops for Visual Elements
Activities include experiences for technological, visual and video developers who will explore image and video applications, live and processed, including technological applications suitable for mixed media, intermedia, and multimedia.
