A NOTE FROM DOUG
Developed for pre-professional and professional dancers, our Annual Winter Intensive will introduce you to Doug Varone and Dancers’ celebrated movement style as well as our artistic philosophy. Traditionally, workshops are designed to build technical strength and body awareness and ours will certainly help build these essential skills. But, like my work, this workshop is designed to tease out and embrace the qualities that each of us possess as dancers, making us unique movers. Our workshop is also a safe haven for students to uncover their individuality and intrinsic nature. -- 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.

The 2017 Winter Intensive will be held at Hunter College on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. We’ll be using Hunter College’s two large dance studios to work and play during the intensive. Within a few blocks, explore Central Park, dine at delicious restaurants, or take the nearby subway to enjoy any of the city’s unlimited cultural resources. DOVA will not provide on-site housing during the week-long retreat.
