Primary Stompin continues to be extremely successful and 2018 was no exception. The program continues to grow each year, and has seen several young people transition into our Core Company for 2019, building from the foundation built through Primary Stompin.
Local choreographer Rikki Mace and Stompin’s Artistic Director, Caitlin Comerford worked together to teach foundational skills in creative process, technique, collaboration and teamwork. The project culminated with two studio showings and a forum, presenting Lost & Found, which investigated the young casts experiences with all things lost or found, from a sock to the washing machine monster, to family members while at a Balinese market.
This project encourages younger people to find their artistic voice and communicate to audiences with confidence, not only through dance but with spoken word and general interaction/answering of audience questions in the forums held after the performances.
