Winter Intensive 2018

Jan 8 - 13, 2018


Hunter College | New York City


9th Annual Winter Intensive

Developed for pre-professional and professional dancers, our Annual Winter Intensive celebrates the company's movement style, creative ideas and artistic philosophy. Our workshops have always been safe havens for students to uncover their individuality in a supportive atmosphere that allows everyone to work at their own level. All of us possess unique qualities as dancers and artists, and learning to embrace those traits pushes us to new places. -- DOUG VARONE


The Winter Intensive provides a supportive community to challenge yourself physically and artistically. Six intensive days interweave technique, repertory and creative investigation as well as a chance to get to know your fellow students and your community.
