Artist Statement

The mission of the Flight Path Dance Project is to train, nurture and grow aspiring young dancers on a path to a professional dance performance career. FPDP will introduce young dancers to various industry professionals, ranging from choreographers, master teachers and industry designers, to injury prevention/management experts and college dance program representatives. The goal of this four year program is to help gifted young dancers, aged fourteen to eighteen, prepare for the rigors of professional life as technically skilled and versatile movers and artists, able to adapt to the inevitable challenges in the life of a professional dancer. FPDP aims to curate an experience that allows these dancers to emerge from the program with a deeper understanding of working within a community and establishing healthy habits of mind, body and soul for long and substantive careers in the professional world of dance.
