Digital DanceForce

July 19 – 23, 2021

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 Dance360 Summer 2020 dancers:

“My expectations were that Digital Dance360 would be an ‘all around’ amazing learning experience. Not just about working on technique or executing the company’s rep but really digging deep into ourselves and learning so much more about what is important right now. These expectations were met and then exceeded.”


“The heart and intention of DWC is really unique. The warmth, care, and nurturing experience of DWC programming is apparent.”


“I loved the opportunity to discuss deeper concepts; asking questions and reflecting is something I value greatly. I appreciate dance communities which encourage dancers to be THINKERS, to have ideas…I am still developing myself in this way; it has taken some time for me to start allowing myself to express and project my ideas audibly and physically. I feel like DWC is a place that cultivates dancer’s growth in this way.”

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