2016 Summer Institute

40th Institute Flyer - mini

Dance Exchange launches our 40th Anniversary Season this July and we invite YOU to join in celebrating four decades of innovative creative practices and boundary-breaking dance making. Institute participants will join from our local region and across the globe to gather as leaders, innovators, movers and thinkers. Anyone 18+ years of age is welcome and encouraged to join this intergenerational experience.

Dance Exchange artistic director Cassie Meador and DX artists and alumni will be joined by founder Liz Lerman at this year’s institute to truly celebrate our 40 year legacy. Led by this creative team, participants will experience daily movement classes, sessions in core practices including Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process, and meaningful dance making beyond the studio with partners in forestry, health care, human rights, and science education.

Be a part of the growing community that leads DX into its next 40 years.
