American Dance Festival's NYC Winter Intensive
American Dance Festival
The ADF Winter Intensive in New York City is eight days of classes, conversations, and performances with NYC-based artists and educators. It brings artists together from around the country and world to form a dancing community in the charged environment of New York City.
The Intensive emphasizes community, communication, and command of the form. People sometimes think that we can’t honor these things simultaneously with excellence—but indeed, we can, and many artists do. It is possible to construct caring rehearsal environments that give everyone a voice and to create undeniably powerful dances. It is possible to challenge one another’s ideas with clear, compassionate communication and to celebrate each other’s inspired performance of challenging movement material.
