youth dance programs

Summer 2019 opportunities to be announced!

Bellingham Repertory Dance is proud to offer young dancers immersive and professional experiences in the High School Contemporary Dance intensive (grades 9-12) and Youth Dance Workshop (grades 6-8). These programs will be overflowing with opportunities for dancers to develop their technique and expand their artistic expression in a dynamic and friendly environment facilitated by BRD dancers. Through kinesthetic problem-solving and vulnerable creativity, dancers complete the intensive with a sense of community and shared accomplishment. Students will engage in daily opportunities to develop as strong, thoughtful artists through classes in contemporary technique, classical and contemporary ballet, conditioning, workshops, and repertory sessions. In these sessions, dancers will also learn choreography from the company’s portfolio of work from nationally recognized choreographers.

A participant from BRD’s Summer 2017 intensive expressed appreciation for their instructor’s ability to “help each dancer find their own way of connecting with the dance and movement.” Still others “loved learning how [they] could move in different ways,” and appreciated “the positive and motivated attitude from students and teachers.”
