intensive description

This workshop is designed for you to address yourself as a whole dance artist and to take full advantage of the opportunities that exist in a unique and collaborative group learning experience.  The community we form during these nine days will be pivotal to what we learn and how we grow.  More than a series of classes, the ADF Winter Intensive is a cohesive curriculum that will give you the opportunity to synthesize moving, making, physically researching, discussing, and forming relationships with other dance artists.
