We are thrilled to announce our very first summer intensive, June 20 – 24, 2022, in Seattle WA designed for pre-professional and professional dancers.

Whim W’Him’s┬ámission, to nurture community with contemporary dance by cultivating space for artists to imagine and explore the human condition, will be the driving philosophy behind WHIM Intensive 22.
Through technique, partnering, repertoire, and improvisation, participants will explore unique contemporary dance alongside Whim W’Him artists.
Whim dancers and Artistic Director Olivier Wevers will also share techniques, approaches, and perspectives which drive the company’s work.
Through the diverse offerings of this course, participating artists will gain tools to serve and develop their creative practice and development as individual artists.
Whim W’Him believes strongly in the power of individuality in artistry and offers this program as a platform for dancers to build further confidence in their own artistry.
