New York City Winter Intensive

January 3-10, 2020
NYU Tisch Dance
ages 18+

The ADF Winter Intensive in New York City is eight days of classes, conversations, and a performance with NYC-based artists and educators. Artists gather at the Intensive from around the country and world to train, discover new ideas, and experience performances together in the charged environment of New York City.

The Intensive establishes a trusting, inclusive community as the necessary foundation for rigorous training, meaningful dialogue, and exciting creative exploration. ADF faculty construct caring, yet challenging, learning environments that celebrate difference and the multiplicity of perspectives that comes along with it.


Each year, ADF chooses a critical lens that allows us to form a vibrant research community focused on a shared concern. In 2020, the Winter Intensive will explore the physical imagination: How does dance allow us to explore and realize our wildest imaginings?


The application is now closed. This Intensive has reached enrollment capacity. If you are still interested, please contact us at to join a waiting list!
