See the future of dance and the next generation of great dancers at this special showcase. The 80 top young dancers taking the stage are all 14 - 22 years old and were selected from auditions held across North America to take part in NW Dance Project's acclaimed training, creation and mentoring project for pre-professional dancers, Summer Dance Intensive, taking place in Portland July 17 - August 11, 2017. This showing is the culmination of four focused and challenging weeks of working with NW Dance Project's leading artists and dynamic company members Andrea Parson (Princess Grace Award winner 2010), Franco Nieto (Princess Grace Award winner 2012), Elijah Labay, and Kody Jauron, as well as special guest choreographers, teachers, and master coaches. This concluding Summer Dance Intensive Showing will give these talented young dancers the opportunity to take the theater stage to perform select works from NW Dance Project's expansive, all-original repertoire, as well as new works choreographed especially for them.
