BETHLEHEM, CT: Pilobolus Summer Workshop Series - Creative Movement Retreat
Pilobolus Dance Theater
Pilobolus focuses on how people, working together, can create form and movement to breathtaking effect. At our Summer Workshop Series, we work with dancers and non-dancers alike to let go of preconceptions about dance, and discover infinite forms of what is beautiful and possible.
Workshops take place at the Woodhall School in Bethlehem, CT – near the company’s Connecticut home. Join us for an immersive Pilobolus experience with a performance by the company!
Ages 18+. Sessions are Monday - Friday, 9am – 5pm.

WEEK 2: ONSTAGE + BEYOND
