This summer, Bellingham Repertory Dance is proud to offer young dancers immersive and professional experiences in the High School 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, ballet, creative process, contemporary jazz, improvisation, and repertory sessions. In these sessions, dancers will also learn choreography from the company’s portfolio of work from nationally recognized choreographers.

Established in 2005, Bellingham Repertory Dance has a long history fostering artistry and developing strong technique in Bellingham’s contemporary dance community. A previous participant of BRD’s youth programs expressed appreciation of 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.”

Limited full and partial scholarships are available. Email for any questions.
