Digital DanceForce

DanceForce is a comprehensive training program for dance students (15+), professional aspirants, and early-career dancers. Programming includes classes in a variety of dance techniques, DanceWorks Chicago repertory, mentorship sessions, artistic coaching, specialty seminars, tell-it-like-it-is professional development sessions, and a culminating sharing for family and friends.
From previous Dance360 Summer dancers:

“I expected to increase my knowledge about technique, choreography, and artistry. I left the program with all of this and a renewed spirit and energy about taking dance to a whole new level. Even more, I left with additional goals for myself as a dancer and person.”

“Just the gesture of having a mental health seminar itself was extremely impactful. Not enough organizations care enough about the mental health of their dancers.”

Faculty features DWC Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa, Dance360 Program Director Sara Bibik, current and former DWC dancers, and MORE!
