a rigorous and creative virtual experience for pre-professional dancers

Ages 18+

Virtual Summer Dance Intensive

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and needed safety protocols, NW Dance Project has split our annual in person Summer Dance Intensive into two Virtual Summer Dance Intensives.

Our Virtual Summer Dance Intensives will offer dancers a rigorous, inspiring, intimate and creative program to help take them to the next level in their dance training and experience.

We believe in the power of dance to adapt in the moment and find news ways of deep and impacting connections.

Our Virtual Summer Dance Intensives will be led by our two Princess Grace Award winners and founding company members, Franco Nieto + Andrea Parson, and other guest teachers as they delve into targeted techniques and NW Dance Project’s acclaimed all-original repertoire. This is a rare opportunity to work intimately with our amazing artists in a safe setting. Special workshops and our Guest Artist Series (including our Artistic Director Sarah Slipper) will highlight the three weeks.

Ages 18+
