The Workshop

The DB|WD Workshop is designed for professional dancers (18+) to meet a range of choreographers making provocative work in our dance community. Each Teaching Artist will lead a workshop that encompasses their physical and choreographic interests, as well as share an excerpt of their work in our evening performances among a list of Performing/Gallery Artists. Our goal is to cultivate a diverse community, centering the body as site of discourse, joy, and understanding.

Partial proceeds for this event will be given to the #blacklivesmatter movement. Learn more about this organization by clicking here

Dante brown|Warehouse Dance

Dante Brown|Warehouse Dance, is a collaborative space where movement artists aim to generate compelling thematic environments within a process of physical and theoretical inquiry. We investigate theatrical moments from a given theme, and their respective emotive counterparts, to produce work that is approachable, satirical by nature, and physically innovative. In the end, we question perspective and the understandings of how we see the day to day.
