Continuing its decade of commitment to young artists, DanceWorks Chicago launches Dance360, a holistic approach to dance training and artistic development. “Dancers need a diverse set of tools to be successful in the studio, on stage, and in life. Dance360 will help young artists identify, develop, and utilize these tools on their journey through dance.” — DWC Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa.
I am still riding afloat on all of the loving energy I was surrounded by. You and your dancers are a reminder of the importance of community, throughout our journey as artists, and in our lives overall. Thank you for shining a bright light on the importance of perspective, both in our everyday commitments and our long term outlooks. – Previous Workshop Attendee
