ODC Summer Workshops

Powerful dance-making emerges from relationships between people. ODC Summer Workshops build connections between dancers at every stage of their practice. Choreographers and dance company members work deeply with participants in all of our programs, creating together, discussing the art form, strategizing career options and finding inspiration.
