NEW YORK, NY (June10, 2012) – The Concert2Commercial Intensive (C2C), a two day workshop series, developed by 3-time Tony Award winner Hinton Battle, kicks off in New York on June 30-July 1, in partnership with the Ailey Extension and the Joan Weill Center for Dance.
In addition to the multi-facetted Mr. Battle, the powerhouse panel of entertainment industry professionals loaning their talents and expertise to the two-day event include: Broadway producer David Garfinkle (Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark, Ghost The Musical), choreographer/dance instructor Josh Bergasse (NBC-TV’s Smash), MSA agent Lucille DiCampli, (specializing in Awards, Music Tours, Music Videos, Film, Television and Commercials/Corporate), choreographer Jeffrey Page (winner Best Choreography, 2011 MTV VMA’s for Beyonce’s “Run the World “Girls”), b-boy dancer/choreographer/actor Ivan “Flipz” Velez (Stomp the Yard, Step Up 3D, The LXD: Legion of Extraordinary Dancers), manager Pamela Cooper (clients include Sergio Trujillo and Ben Vereen), and photographer to the stars Ronnie Wright.
“The Concert2Commercial Intensive (C2C) is the culmination of a dream,” says Hinton, who arrived alone in New York at age 13 with a scholarship to study under George Balanchine at the School of American Ballet. For him, opportunities came knocking, for most - opportunities have to be made or found.
The desire to use his experiences as the vehicle to help a new wave of young dancers, choreographers, performers, and those looking to enhance their careers, is the catalyst driving C2C. Participants will have an opportunity to meet and interface with decision makers and star-makers. They will get an insider’s perspective of the business, starting with the very basic and moving through the more complex elements needed to be seen, leave an impression, get the job and thrive in this business we call “show business”.
Presentation being a key element in any business, it is even more so in the entertainment industry, where the emphasis is on “the total package” – talent, looks and stage presence. C2C will help, by showing participants what that “total package” looks like and how to attain it.
Registration for the C2C Intensive is simple, visit- www.c2ci.net to register. Cost for the two-day event, dates and additional information can be found on the C2C website.
Saturday, June 30 12PM-4PM
