Summer Dance Professional Studies

Summer Dance Professional Studies

The Professional Studies Intensive offers a one-week deep dive into the creative process, teaching methodology, and repertory of some of today's leading contemporary dance choreographers. The Intensive provides a space for dancers to experience the creative practices of a diverse and innovative group of choreographers. Through rigorous training and creative exploration, dancers are encouraged to step beyond what is familiar and into what is possible while cultivating their artistic voice.

Previous Faculty: Sidra Bell, Jon Bond, Peter Chu, Alexandra Damiani, Greg Dolbashian, Wesley Ensminger, Victor Quijada, Jason Parsons and Dante Puleio.
