Designed to provide a fulfilling experience in a single day, DayLabs demonstrate Dance360 values: addressing dancers’ technical and artistic development along with career advancement needs.
DayLabs serve as an introduction to the DanceWorks Chicago Dance360 experience and provide a connection to the company. Each DayLab includes a movement-oriented ballet class, a second technique class, DWC repertoire, and tell-it-like-it-is seminar.
DayLabs are designed for dancers age 15+ … no audition required.
Join us for a DayLab (or two…) and immerse yourself in a professional environment geared to addressing training, artistic exploration, and career development.
“You didn’t just teach a class, you taught the students in the class.” – DayLab Dancer, Sophie Allen
“The big ‘takeaway’ moment I had during the workshop was during our talk about auditioning. When I asked if it is wise to move to a desired city without a job you mentioned that I may have predestined my own idea of knowing I won’t have a job by a certain time, and showed me that idea could be false. Showing me that the biggest enemy of my own dreams could be my own thoughts allowed me to practice shaping my thoughts about the future from fears into excitement. It was a crucial reminder for where I am at this point of my life to realize that I have the ability to shape my future positively and become what I have been aspiring to become.” –DayLab Dancer Tanner Boyer
