These special student performances are introduced and contextualized by Artistic Director Christopher House and include time for dialogue between artists and the audience. No previous dance experience required.

Suitable for grades 7-12

I felt like a true dancer being in the space that professional dancers work in, create in, and perform in. The live musicians were a cherry on top of the well-rounded experience. The instructors even treated us as dancers and put us in a mind frame that all you need to do is try your best without the judgement of those around you or even yourself.
