August Intensive

Peggy Baker Dance Projects returns with a progressive curriculum for its August 2017 Intensive. Led by master teachers, this workshop is designed for professional dancers and pre-professional dance students enrolled in full-time dance training programs.

Registration Options

Choose between two distinct full week streams: Repertory or Creative Practice. For dancers in the Repertory stream, the intensive closes with a public showcase at dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) Festival on Saturday, August 19 at 2pm in the Betty Oliphant Theatre.
