SUMMER CAMP
21. - 24. July 2021

The SUMMER CAMP is an invitation to join the SEBASTIAN WEBER DANCE COMPANY for a comprehensive tap training with international guest artists Max Pollak and Andreas Dänel. Four days to dive deep into musicality and improvisation, explore methods and repertoire of the company and expand the scope of your artistry in a collaborative environment.

A special tap dance event!

This event welcomes you into the brandnew (possibly even unfinished!) home of the SEBASTIAN WEBER DANCE COMPANY, where we will work together all day exploring musicality, improvisation and creative process. For the company, this is a time to practice, learn, and share our passion. 

There are four different workshop tracks: mornings are for pro level tap dancers and the SWDC members, afternoons are open to intermediate and advanced levels and the evenings welcome anyone who would like to discover percussive dance — even with no previous knowledge.

At the beginning of each day, the company’s KICK ASS BALL CHANGE warm up is streamed online and open to all levels. In the evenings, there’s a welcome party, a jam session, our beach club talk format, and a BBQ night.

Work with the best!

For the summer camp, we invited two of our favorite tap artists:

Andreas Dänel

Andreas Dänel

Andreas Dänel is a tap dance virtuoso, violinist and composer of outstanding merits. He won international acclaim performing Morton Gould’s Tap Dance Concerto with orchestras across Europe and presented his own composition for orchestra and tap dancers „SignADiapunktur“ with the Peninsula Symphony Orchestra in San Francisco, dancing alongside Sam Weber.

Max Pollak

Max Pollak

Max Pollak (Austria / New York) is recognized worldwide as a leading voice in contemporary tap dance. Merging percussive dance with Afro-Cuban music, he created a new style called RumbaTap, which he performs across the globe. As an award-winning choreographer, educator, composer, and recording artist, Max is also co-creator of the off-Broadway hit show „Carmen, to Havana and Back“.

Who is the SUMMER CAMP for?

The Summer Camp is for tap dance enthusiasts who like to move beyond their comfort zones, to challenge themselves, and to contribute to a collaborative, open-minded creative experience. You should enjoy exploring new approaches and arrive with play mode ON. Also, you should be ready to sweat!
