Bellingham Repertory Dance is proud to offer two youth programs this summer, providing young dancers an immersive and professional experience. Through kinesthetic problem-solving and vulnerable creativity, dancers complete the intensive with a sense of community and shared accomplishment. 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.”
