WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
The program is open for all dancers from beginners to professionals who are minimum 16 years of age. We have the main 5-week schedule which includes 4 different programs, each one of them specifically constructed for the different levels of dancers, from beginners to advanced. Next to the main schedule we have added two advanced weekend intensives for professional dancers.
In collaboration with our partner organization Platform K, some classes and workshops will be open for people with (mental) disabilities and special needs, with individual accompaniment.
Furthermore we have added tailored project weeks, aiming at participants with specific backgrounds or happening in public space. These workshops are launched separately by open call. Some of them are especially adapted to people with a disability, in dialogue with Platform K. In this way we try to incorporate everyone in the joy of dancing.
More info about these special projects can be found on this website in SummerStudios 2022 !
