Gerard Heintz/ Vincent Noiseux Workshop @ BESD! @ Barbara Ellis Studio of Dance
Oct 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

We will be holding the “Gerard Heintz” workshop on October 22nd. Since Gerard is unable to attend this years workshop, he personally recommended Vincent Noiseux who will be coming in Gerard’s place as our Guest Artist and Choreographer! Vincent is not only an amazing hip hop dancer and choreographer, but he is a phenomenal and well-rounded dancer who is also well-known for his contemporary work and many other dance styles!

Here is Vincent’s Bio from The Broadway Dance Center:

Originally from Montreal, Canada, Vincent Noiseux started dancing at a young age and quickly discovered he had a passion for movement. It didn’t take much for him to decide that dance would be his life and career.

After training many years in Hip-Hop, Jazz, Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz Funk, and Modern, he started working in Montreal, quickly becoming one of the top working dancers there and being invited to teach and choreograph across Canada. After competing on the Canadian version of So You Think You Can Dance as well as America’s Best Dance Crew with Blueprint Cru, Vincent decided to push his career further and he made the move to Los Angeles.

Vincent has danced for artists such as Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, J. Lo, Katy Perry, and Ricky Martin. He was seen performing on various TV shows such as X-Factor, Glee, Dancing With The Stars, and VH1 Divas, as well as award shows like the Grammys, Kid’s Choice Awards, American Music Awards, and People’s Choice. Vincent was also a member of Dana Foglia Dance Company.

Vincent continues to train and take classes and always sees himself as a student, in both dance and life in general. There is always more to learn and for him, growth is key.

Event Information and Details

Where: Barbara Ellis Studio of Dance

When: October 22, 2017

Who: All students 7 and up invited! (Senior Crew and Junior Crew Members are required to attend all day, Ensemble members are not required, but highly encouraged)

What: This is a hip hop workshop event will take place at our Studio. The schedule for the day will be the following: 10a-11a Beginner Class, 11a-12p Intermediate class, 12p-12:30p lunch break, 12:30p-1:30p Advanced class. This is an event run by the Southern Colorado Dance Association.

Cost: 1 Class $17.50, 2 Classes $35.00, all classes/all day $45.00. It is $10 for a parent/observer to attend one class, $15 for a parent/observer to attend all day. We will only allow up to 10 observers in the room for each class, so please sign up early! All payments are due to the BESD Office by Oct 14, 2017.

Vincent will be working on different combinations in each class, so those who can handle all levels are encouraged to work with Vincent all day. Some of our younger dancers may really enjoy both the Beginning and Intermediate level classes, but the Advanced level class is geared towards both Crew levels, Ensemble members, and Adult hip hoppers, and will likely be a bit too challenging for our younger/less experienced hip hoppers.

*Please be sure to arrive a half hour before your class begins. Anyone arriving late/after class begins will not be allowed into class. You will have some space to warm up in the smaller studio to make sure you are stretched and ready to begin your class!

We are so excited to work with Vincent Noiseux and we hope you can join us for such a great workshop!
