This three-weeks course is for intermediate and advanced dancers who are looking to add industry know-how to their dance tool-box.

Courses with these choreographers/instructors run alongside courses in acting, entrepreneurship, and media-based collaboration – a formula specifically designed to empower dynamic technique, strong storytelling and performance skills, and a true understand of what it is to be a part of the commercial dance industry.
Attendees have daily exposure to exclusive choreographers and industry professionals through daily master workshops and mentored productions.

Entrepreneurship and collaboration courses offer insights on set-etiquette, audition technique and preparation, basic filmmaking totems (allowing for empowered self-taping), industry customs, and more.
All Commercial Dance participants create three pieces of original digital content including a dance solo, a partner scene and an interdisciplinary group project collaboratively produced amongst peers and guided by an industry mentor.
