The DASH Summer Study at Triskelion Arts
The DASH Ensemble
Join The DASH Ensemble for its third-annual Summer Study in New York City this June! Spend 4 days researching athletic and dynamic contemporary movement in an immersive dance setting under artistic director Gregory Dolbashian. This intensive aims to help dancers overcome their personal and creative obstacles as well as strengthen their artistry. Each day participants will take morning class led by Dolbashian and other guest teachers, which will be comprised of contemporary technique, floorwork, improvisation, and partnering exercises. Students will spend the rest of the day in composition workshops in order to delve into their own choreographic voice, learning DASH Ensemble repertory as well as choreography, from other prominent dance makers in NYC. Throughout the intensive, Dolbashian will help hone and develop the clairy, intent, and physical complexity that characterize The DASH’S work, all with the intention of offering advanced dancers the creative and physical tools necessary to thrive in the professional dance world.
Morning class will be open for drop-ins from 10am-11:30am every morning.
