What is LINK?

LINK is a project for advanced dancers (18+) to make professional connections, audition for companies/projects, and to experience an in depth exploration of contemporary dance.

Each day includes ballet, contemporary form (improvisation and more), and one intimate choreographic process. LINK is truly an all-inclusive career development resource for dancers.
