Contemporary Cross-Training is a 5-week series of contemporary dance classes that offers dancers the opportunity to study a diverse range of contemporary dance concepts, vocabularies, and techniques on a daily basis. Designed to be a research lab for both dancers and teaching artists, New Dialect aims to create an environment where gifted teachers are encouraged to explore and refine what they teach, and each dancer is actively engaged in the process of identifying with clarity and confidence his or her own movement signature.
