TU Dance: CUL·TI·VATE, A Trainee Program 2023-2024 - August 14

Inspired by the next generation of dance artists, CUL·TI·VATE is a program designed as a bridge for dancers with advanced training between their educational perspective and envisioning themselves in the professional field. Through classes, workshops, choreographic processes, mentorship, community engagement, teaching, performance, and more, dancers will connect and share experiences as a collective as well as expressing and gaining momentum toward their individual interests and goals beyond their time in the program. CUL·TI·VATE will embrace and support each dancer while fostering their unique artistic path centered in TU Dance’s values of excellence, belonging, creativity, and transformation.

Age range: 18-24. Trainees will be compensated as employees, $450/week.
