Community Outreach & Residencies

NDW stimulates the local dance scene by providing opportunities for performance and professional development. Outreach takes many forms including workshops, choreographic labs, and creative residencies. Our programs benefit both artists and the general public with much-needed training and mentorship.

Flamenco Residency with Raíces y Alas

Technical Residencies

Technical Residencies allow artists to explore and realize technical details of their work. Artists have time in the theatre to think and move through each production element with the guidance of professional technicians.
