Participants will create dance works in collaborative classes, learn new dances in cultural and world classes, and view or perform dances in a professional theatre each evening. Classes will be taught by dance educators and instructors from across the country. They will share their expertise and passion for dance and provide enriching, age appropriate, creative, and culturally-authentic experiences.
