ProArteDanza acknowledges the under-representation of IBPOC artists in dance, and the need to ensure Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in training. As a step forward to address this issue, we are now offering two new scholarships for the 2022 Summer Intensive Program specifically for racialized dance students, age: 15+.
The Summer Intensive Program Showcase features the culmination of four weeks of hard work and dedication from the summer intensive dancers! This year we have three groups of dancers and there will be 5 dance pieces in the program. The program will consist of repertory from ProArteDanza’s company and new creations; featuring works by Roberto Campanella, Robert Glumbek, and Ryan Lee! Please come to the show and support these talented artists! Performances take place at 8pm Aug 25-27 and at 2pm on Aug 28 at the Winchester Street Theatre.
