Please thoughtfully select your preference of morning courses for the duration of your time at the Festival. This mix of technique and somatic offerings will not change/rotate throughout.

Afternoon Intensives each last one week, allowing for a generous and deep look into a specific form, practice, repertory or pedagogy. Please select a single intensive for each week you intend to dance at the Festival.

Your course selections, application video & resume, and class capacity will determine your overall Festival schedule.
