I've always seen this intensive as a way of channeling the philosophy of the dances we create into a shared experience. Our work is threaded together by a sense of humanity that embraces the individual as part of the larger community. So for three weeks, we'll live together, work together, create together and grow together. The Company builds a safe haven that allows you to challenge yourself in both mind and body and explore the individual qualities that we each possess as artists in a thinking world.
I am confident that the unique structure and personal teaching approach of the Company will leave you with new ideas, answers and questions about why we all do what we do: this dance thing. I hope you will join us as we return to Saratoga Springs on the beautiful campus of Skidmore College.
