GUEST ARTISTS

Dancers’ Workshop invites artists from all over the world to engage directly with our students, inspire our teachers and professional dancers and enrich our community through performance. Guest artist programming at Dancers’ Workshop diversifies and augments our students’ regular training. Artist residencies expose our dancers to instructors of varied backgrounds, perspectives and teaching styles, connecting them to artists of the highest caliber and to the greater dance community.
