CONTEMPORARY DANCE WORKSHOPS

Whim W’Him contemporary dance workshops will be held in New York City on Thursday, March 5, 2020 from 6pm – 8pm (W1), and on Friday, March 6, 2020 from 4pm – 6pm (W2) at Gibney – Union Square (890 Broadway). These workshops are held before our audition on Saturday, March 7, 2020. Learn more about the audition at whimwhim.org/auditions

We aim to create an inclusive work environment and work to actively embrace a diversity of people, ideas, talents, and experiences. We highly encourage people of color, individuals with disabilities, and other historically underrepresented groups in our community to apply.

Invited dancers will explore original repertoire and receive a hands on collaborative approach to movement creation from Olivier Wevers, Whim W’Him Founder and Artistic Director. Dancers will also practice collaborative improvisation and partnering.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a welcoming and non-competitive creative environment, similar to company life, that will culminate in phrases sourced from current Whim W’Him repertoire as well as newly created material.
