  • In-Studio participants will train at the historical building home to Peridance Center, located in Union Square in the heart of New York City. 
  • Online participation will be offered through Peridance’s Online Studio. Peridance has partnered with FitGrid to offer a secure online system which ensures that participants receive individualized and encrypted links for each class and rehearsal.

How will the online classes work?

 

For classes: 

Peridance is fully equipped with the technology and staff to integrate a successful and welcoming hybrid program. Online participants will ZOOM into technique classes where they will be seen by teachers at Peridance on a large TV monitor. Studio technology will ensure that faculty is able to work closely with both In-Studio and Online students. Each day, students will receive new and secure links for all classes.

 

For repertoire:

Online students will work remotely with a choreographer to create a dance film. The film will premiere live with the new works set on In-Studio participants.
