We are thrilled to announce our WHIM Summer Intensive ’23, Tuesday June 20, 2023 – Friday June 30, 2023, in Seattle WA designed for pre-professional and professional dancers.
WHIM Summer Intensive ’23 is geared towards pre-professional and professional dancers. Dancers aged 18 and above may apply.
We will select two groups of only 14 dancers each, creating an intimate, safe environment to nurture growth. All participants will experience one-on-one work with the artists of Whim.
Whim W’Him’s mission, 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 Summer Intensive ’23.
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.
Week 1 will focus on repertoire and Week 2 will focus heavily on partnering work.
Participants will also take part in professional development workshops, including direct feedback on their resumes and reels.
Through the diverse offerings of this course, participating artists will gain tools to serve and develop their creative practice and career development as individual artists.
