About the AIMI Project:
Combining both dance instruction and production preparation, AIMI is unmatched as an enriching summer arts experience for children ages 9 - 13 from the Greater Hartford area who have the opportunity to work with Oscar and Emmy Award winner Jacques d’Amboise H’03 who serves as artist-in-residence, Choreographer/Director Kay Gayner, along with the team from New York City’s renowned National Dance Institute. As participants in the University of Saint Joseph’s 2013 AIMI Project, children attend dance workshops, create their own costumes and scenery, and join with educators and graduate students in presenting this spirited, high-energy production!
