KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s Dance at the Gym

April 2nd 2018 - April 6th 2018

Professional Training + Community Engagement

Spend an intimate week with Larry Keigwin, designing and implementing a community dance immersion. Only 15 spots available!

April 2nd – April 6th, 2018
Hunter College in NYC


Call for Dancers!

A well-rounded professional dancer must be a striking performer AND a creative, flexible contributor. The hard truth is that a dance career is not spent fully on stage… or even in rehearsal. It’s balanced by teaching and integrating dance into the community.

Training programs don’t often prepare dancers for community-based experiences, leaving new professionals to learn on the fly.

At KEIGWIN + COMPANY we have a long history of compelling, joyous and poignant community engagement. We will share what we have learned and collaborate with you on designing and  our newest project: Dance at the Gym.

Get ahead of the curve, hone skills essential to a successful career, and experience how dance outreach is often one of the most rewarding components of an artist’s life.

The days will begin with a professionally-oriented class, led by Larry Keigwin and rotating KEIGWIN + COMPANY dancers. Next, explore Larry’s choreographic methods and approaches for integrating with non-dancer populations. Following a dinner break, community members will join the process. Together, we will create a piece to Leonard Bernstein’s riveting score “Dance at the Gym.”
