Advanced Platform

JUL 13 - JUL 31

a rigorous and creative virtual experience for pre-professional dancers

ages 18+

Virtual Advanced Platform

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and needed safety protocols, NW Dance Project will be holding our Advanced Platform online exclusively. We believe in the power of dance to adapt in the moment and find news ways of making deep and impacting connections.

Our Virtual Advanced Platform is geared for those exemplary dancers 18+ who display advanced technique and artistic maturity and are ready to be pushed and developed to help make the transition from school to career.

Our Virtual Advanced Platform 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, our Resident Choreographer Ihsan Rustem) will highlight the three weeks.

Tuition: $1,000

Commitment Date: All dancers must confirm their participation by JUN 15 / 2020.
Dancers already registered in our Advanced Platform will be given priority enrollment.
In the event that we do not meet the minimum enrollment numbers, dancers will be notified and original refund + credit policies will be instated.
