Innovative College Combine 2022 will be at the University of Kansas on Sunday, December 4th from 9:00am-4:15pm.  We are thrilled for our fifth year of bringing a combine to the Kansas City area!  Colleges and universities from the midwest will be in attendance to recruit and represent their programs. 

Back in 2022:   All participating dancers will be sent an instructional video of the jazz choreography a week and a half prior to each combine.  Learn the choreography on your own time.  Come to the combine ready for a quick review then you will have an opportunity to show off your dances for the outstanding college coaches!  You will also learn choreography LIVE at each of the combines. 

 

Class of 2023 Seniors: Seniors will have an optional opportunity to stay at the end of the combine for Innovative Choreography staff members to record each of the three combinations.  Videos will then be compiled and shared with the seniors as well as all college coaches!  This opportunity individually showcases your talents for the coaches, and coaches can refer to your video at any time!  Additionally, you will have all video files for your future needs: audition videos, reels, etc.

Dancers will begin the day with an opportunity to have professional headshots and full body photos taken by the amazing Alexis Close of B.Close Photography.  All photos will be made available to purchase! 

 

Innovative Choreography faculty members will lead a stretch, review the jazz choreography, and teach technique, hip hop choreography, and a pom sideline.  At the combine, dancers will learn hip hop and the pom sideline LIVE.  Participants will have an opportunity to demonstrate each routine for the collegiate coaches.  Dancers will interact with coaches through scheduled mingle sessions.  Additionally, all participants will be provided a list of coaches and contact information.  Likewise, all coaches will be provided a list of participants and contact information.

 

All attending dancers will receive feedback from an Innovative Choreography staff member!  We hope this addition will provide even more education, support, and encouragement to every dancer in attendance.

The combine is closed to the public/spectators.  High school coaches may register to attend.
