It’s going to be a hot summer at The International Dance Festival-Silicon Valley! The Lively Foundation is thrilled to announce that LEANNE RINELLI, the hugely popular dancer/choreographer who taught in our first season, is returning to teach Salsa dancing this summer. Leanne will teach during the Mon-Friday workshop and offer an open master class as part of the Full Day of Dance©. She will teach her M-F workshop class a dance to perform in the Festival Concert. Dancers in her workshop will learn the exciting varieties of footwork in Salsa. The dance they learn will be a Salsa circle dance. The rhythm! The music! Can’t sit still thinking of it. The International Dance Festival-Silicon Valley, Season 3, will be August 11-17, 2014, in Mountain View, CA. Intermediate – Advanced dancers, age 18 and older, are invited to participate in the Monday-Friday workshop which includes classes in Dunham dancing, taught by Leslie Arbogast; Salsa, taught by Leanne Rinelli; and Contemporary plus Improv/Composition, taught by Leslie Friedman. Dancers in the M-F workshops may dance in the Festival Concert on the program with acclaimed professionals, including their teaching artists. The Full Day of Dance© on Saturday, Aug. 16, will include classes in Pilates, Tap, Contemporary, Dunham, Salsa, Manipuri Dance, and Etta Walton’s Electric Slide & other lines. Don’t miss this Festival!
