Led by internationally renowned repetiteur, teacher, and Compass Coaching Project Artistic Director, Dominic Walsh, the program will focus on the individual needs of each dancer, breaking down the intricacies and challenges of attaining a more efficient technique through a variety of tools in both classical and contemporary dance. Compass Coaching Project also offers classes in Alexander Technique, Movement Therapy, and Anatomy. Artists will have the opportunity to work on repertoire from such iconic choreographers as Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe, Jirí Kylián, Crystal Pite, and more.

The Advanced Summer Intensive program is for dancers who want a challenging summer experience that will accelerate their ballet, contemporary, and cultural dance training in an intimate, individualized setting. The Advanced Summer Intensive runs June 19 – July 29, 2023 with three divisions serving intermediate/advanced and advanced dancers ages 12-22. Students will train up to 8 hours per day Monday-Friday with rigorous and invigorating classes designed to diversify their capacity for movement. An optional 2-hour ballet technique class is also available on Saturdays.
