HOW WE WORK
We provide students (2nd-12th grade) the opportunity to take dance classes or dance production classes with highly experienced performing arts professionals, followed by a week of on-site learning at a prestigious NYC theater. Student-dancers perform on stage with the professionals while the students-apprentices assist in Stage Management, Costume Design, Lighting Design, and Videography during technical rehearsals and backstage during the performances.
