The Danceworks DanceLAB offers workshops throughout the year to further the education of local dance artists and give dancers of any genre the tools needed to create fresh, sophisticated and inventive choreography. Guest artists are space grant recipients, as well as national and local choreographers.
Check out our Summer Performance Workshops!
Danceworks performance workshops are for serious students who are interested in performing and have a minimum of 3-4 years of consistent dance training. Choreography taught in these workshops will be performed in Danceworks DanceLAB concert, Rhythmworks August 12-14, 2022.
Due to the performance component of the workshops, consistent attendance is required to participate in the performance opportunities. We do encourage everyone participating in the workshop to be part of the performance. The performance is not mandatory, however, choreographers must be aware of this before they begin setting the work. DanceLab performances are ticketed events and anyone attending must purchase a ticket.
