UDD 2009 Summer Dance Intensive Camp
We would like to congratulate all the students that took the classes and participated in the culminating Dance Showcase on August 30th! The purpose of the camp is to allow students the opportunity to further their artistic and creative ability through the exploration of taking different types of dance classes that they haven't tried before. Every Summer the Camp will invite well known and experienced instructors to come in and work with the students. A final piece is performed at the end in order for students to showcase their accomplishments. This Summer we presented Modern/Jazz Techniques, Lyrical Combination (Carrie Homuth) and Belly Dance (Alexandra A. Owings). Next summer we will offer different genres of dance. Stay tuned to be connected. We would like to thank both Carrie and Alex for teaching their skills, choreographing and performing with the students at UDD.

Bio: Alexandra A. Owings, dance instructor
Alexandra is a belly dancer and instructor in the metro area. She has explored the art of belly dance since she was sixteen and she continues to develop her skills by teaching, taking classes, and studying Middle Eastern culture and dance. She has been a student for several years and an instructor/choreographer for over two years. She loves the sensuality and confidence that belly dance brings to her and her students. Currently, she is choreographing several dances, one of which will be performed in Las Vegas this September. Happy Shimmying!

Bio: Carrie Homuth, dance instructor
Carrie Homuth is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point dance program and is currently working as a choreographer/dance educator throughout the Twin Cities. She has been the Director of Dance for Eagan High School and Director/Assistant Director of dance for Apple Valley High School the past 3 years. In 2004, Carrie co-founded Metro Academy of Dance Education in Apple Valley, where she served as Assistant Director for 4 years. Carrie has been a guestchoreographer multiple times for the Zenon School Block E Scholarship Program. She has also recently choreographed for the Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis, Phipps Center of the Arts in Hudson, WI, and The Space - Center for Creativity in New Richmond, WI. The summer of 2007, Carrie performed in Cathy Wright's "Return", part of the Momentum dance series and voted the Best of 2007 by the Star Tribune. She is very excited to be bringing her dance style to Universal Dance Destiny.

Fringe show 2007: African Roads, American Streets

Some Reviews: 

... I reviewed your beautiful performance in PULSE Newspaper, the AUGUST 9th edition. It was part of my round up on the Fringe Fest.

Thanks for putting me on your media list.

I saw a LOT of stuff at the Fringe this year--but, NOTHING made me feel as hopeful about humanity or just glad to be alive, as African Roads, American Street.

Keep on keeping on!

Solidarity,
Lydia Howell


"Can't keep your body still" by Nadine Sehnert: Wonderful drumming and other beats during this performance will keep you moving in your seat. You will also be invited up on the stage at the end to join in the fun - take advantage of the opportunity! Opening night was a little rocky with some technical items but "the kids can dance". How wonderful to see performers of all ages (kids to elders) in this truly multicultural show with artists of different artistic backgrounds and skill levels. Edna Stevens has a way of pulling talent into her projects so don't miss it because you never know who might show up. Enjoy!


"Go early or get reservations!" by John Armstrong: Fantastic music and dance! The beat-boxing and break-dancing segments in particular showcase some extraordinary talent that's sure to amaze and delight you. The traditional African rhythms are intoxicating and the dancing to accompany them is equally energetic. The smiles on the dancer's faces echo their movements and you can truly tell that all 35 people that perform on the stage are truly happy with the work they present. Must-see!
