Young Choreographers Initiative, for ages 14-adult


Teaching Artists:

Full Description


With Susan Quinn

This class is designed for young choreographers committed to transforming themselves and their world through the craft of dance-making while also expanding their dynamic range as performers. Artists will collaborate on a group piece for the end-of-year performance based on their discovery of what matters to them as a community. Get ready to connect, have fun, and create a dance that makes a difference!

Mondays 5-6:45pm
January 22 – May 20
FREE for the full session

This class is underwritten by the Diane Pearlman Young Choreographers Scholarship Fund. The cost of the course is covered for all dancers participating. 

*This class is required for Senior YCI artists. Participation in this class is by invitation only. Students must commit to attending the session for the entire year and can look forward to creating work in collaboration with their peers. Since participation and partnership is an important part of this class, young artists may not miss more than 2 classes a semester. YCI participants can anticipate developing their leadership and showing initiative, which will require homework and rehearsal outside of regular class time. They will also be counted on to communicate with the director and their peers to fulfill their planning. We will discuss all expectations in a mandatory family meeting during the first class of the session.

Please remember to review our dress code, registration guide, and policies when registering for a Youth Performing Arts Program course.
