We’re very excited to announce the lead artists for this year’s music and dance programmes at Summer Performing Arts with Juilliard – both of whom are masters of their craft.
Leading the music programme is renowned violinist Annaliesa Place. Annaliesa is the director of strings at Dwight-Englewood School in New Jersey and has performed across the US, Europe and Asia with ECCO, Classnotes, Alarm Will Sound, ACJW, Absolute Ensemble and Metropolis Ensemble. She has also performed and recorded around the world with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, The Roots and Michale Bublé, among many others, or you may have seen her Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and David Letterman. We are honoured to have her as a guest artist and teacher.
We are also privileged to have Hilary Easton as Dance Lead. Hillary has been part of the Juilliard faculty since 2012 and has previously taught at Princeton University and NYU Tisch School of the Arts. In addition to her own contemporary dance company, Hilary has choreographed for companies/artists including the Talking Band, Joffrey II, and Headwaters Dance Co. Hilary’s dance style has been described by The New York Times as “intelligent and engaging…She choreographs like a poet, weaving together piercing, elliptical observations.”
Summer Performing Arts with Juilliard is a unique opportunity for your child to study music, dance and drama with exceptional artists from the world’s leading performing arts educator, The Juilliard School. The two week programme is taking place in Geneva, Switzerland from 9-22 July, and is suitable for beginners to more advanced young artists.
