DECEMBER 28, 2017–JANUARY 5, 2018
THE AILEY STUDIOS
Experience nine days of classes and collaborative learning with developing professionals, led by artists working in NYC. Expand your understanding of the world and experience how dance is an essential way of being in it. Think. Feel. Dance. Be moved.
This year, the Winter Intensive will focus a critical lens on the productive tensions between two influential roots of modern dance: the African diaspora and Western European tradition. The work we will do together—dancing, discussing, and watching work—is structured to provide a fulfilling, challenging experience, regardless of your familiarity with the forms presented or identification with the traditions framing the intensive.
“I am changed as a dancer. Not because I gained more flexibility, turns, or higher jumps, but because I know how dance is essential to our humanity.”
