The New Mexico School for the Arts is holding a Roswell dance residency with Miss Minnie’s School of Ballet, 307 E. 19th St., under guidance of NMSA clinician Ariel Gottschall Johnson. The residency will be part of the 10th annual Dance Intensity Summer Workshop, June 4 to 7.

Over the past two years, New Mexico School for the Arts has provided a number of arts workshops for 300 Roswell students, which featured clinicians and faculty members from the New Mexico School for the Arts. These workshops have included theater, visual arts, music, creative writing and dance.

NMSA clinician Gottschall Johnson is returning a second time to provide workshops for Miss Minnie’s School of Ballet. Gottschall Johnson began her classical ballet training with Aspen Santa Fe Ballet before attending high school at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and continuing her education at State University of New York at Purchase.

Gottschall Johnson dedicated herself to promoting children’s performing arts and teaches in Santa Fe at the National Dance Institute New Mexico. Gottschall Johnson is looking forward to returning to Miss Minnie’s School of Dance to provide a workshop focusing on modern technique and choreography.

Students attending Miss Minnie’s Dance Intensity Summer Workshop will have the opportunity to work with three dance instructors during the four days. Classes will include lyrical ballet, modern and jazz.
