Evening of Contemporary dance workshop
The Contemporary Dance Experience Fall Workshop

Come dance with Emotions Physical Theatre at our Contemporary Dance Experience Fall Audition/Workshop featuring nationally and internationally known teachers, choreographers, and companies. Each year Emotions Physical Theatre hosts a summer and fall audition/workshop to give dancers the opportunity to meet several choreographers in one place. The Contemporary Dance Experience is a one day workshop with three hiring choreographers. Each choreographer has a one hour class/audition that day. This workshop happens before our annual dance festival. During our most recent summer workshop, dancers got paid performance work through the connections they built with various choreographers.
