2017 Summer Workshop
This workshop is geared towards advanced and professional level dancers.
For 35 years, the BTJ/AZ Company has been on the leading edge of contemporary art, moving audiences around the world with the athleticism, intelligence, and human resonance of its work. Now, the 2017 Summer Workshop will offer immersion in the rigorous training, creative methods and worlds of thought at the core of the Company’s newest works. Guided by experienced and passionate teachers from the Company, participants will take classes in contemporary technique in the Company’s style, partnering, speech training, and composition; engage in discussions at the intersections of art, history, and contemporary culture; and will have the opportunity to grow in the warmth of a community of peers who like to sweat and are called to strive.
Evolve your Craft. Ignite your Mind. Dance your Edges.
