Dance programs at Banff Centre provide a rare space for today’s curious professional dance artist. Dance programs encourage research, sharing, and questions around topics such as the creation process, training, somatic practices, and the future of contemporary dance.

I was thrilled to attend this program and learn from incredible mentors while working full time with dancers. I am excited to return to California and share all I have learned with the dance program I design for.
