  Programs  
 

Unique to the Dance Complex is the approach to and realization of programs. The ideas for programs come from within the community, addressing needs and creating opportunities. With each of our programs, the Dance Complex has been able to give riches back to the community, revitalizing the neighborhood and welcoming people from all economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. The Dance Complex has developed and deepened relationships with local businesses, the school system, artists, and government departments. These collaborations enhance not only the Dance Complex but also the strength of the community by providing accessible, quality artistic work and opportunities for local artists...

 
 

INTEGRATED ARTIST RESIDENCY EXCHANGE (THE I-ARE):

The Dance Complex is seeking artist partners whose own vision, like ours, is turned toward next steps. The artist would be in residence for 10 - 12 week periods throughout the year, with an initial artist residency beginning September 2013. Artists would be afforded space for both studio and administrative use to further their own explorations. Applicants whose intended focus intersects with a need of The Dance Complex community will be given special consideration. A key goal for a successful residency exchange is that the artist, The Dance Complex and the wider community benefits from the knowledge and practice of the other is. The artist/s will be asked to share outcomes of their work from their time while in residence with the community and the public through dialogue, performance or other means.

a MAKE iT/SHARE iT/SHOW iT (aMaSSiT):

aMaSSiT participants will be expected to actively be working on dances, bringing those dances to group lab sessions and welcome mentors to other rehearsals. The group will meet together for pre-scheduled sessions, with additional meetings possible. Those involved in making dances should plan on additional work times outside of the lab in between each session. Up to 8 hours of studio time will be afforded to individual aMaSSiT participants between first meeting and final session, covered by the tuition fee. Once committed to the process, participants agree to take part in all events up through scheduled public sharings.

WORKSTUDY PROGRAM at the DANCE COMPLEX

WORK STUDY PROGRAM EVOLVES TO DIMENSIONAL LEARNING EXCHANGE:

Participants of the Work Study Exchange give their time, energy, and talent to The Dance Complex in exchange for free dance classes and/or rehearsal time. They are a vital part of the organization, helping with the daily upkeep of our historic building, reception, administration, events, marketing and other projects. Having a corps of volunteers allows The Dance Complex to offer the most affordable studio rental rates around and make dance an accessible art form for all.

The Exchange fosters engagement, networking and collaboration among its participants and the incredible community of movers, administrators, friends and artists that call The Dance Complex its home. We love our Work Studies!
