CHOREOGRAPHIC WORKSHOP: FLIP
Dancers flip roles for our choreographic workshop series: FLIP (pun intended). Dancers take the lead at the front of the room to choreograph and coordinate new works. This series offers Dancers an opportunity to refine choreographic skills and develop new understandings of all the efforts that go into producing performances. This series focuses and uplifts the artists that live in Charlotte – giving them an opportunity to creatively thrive in the Queen City.
