Dance Critics Workshop


Part of the Asia Pacific Dance Festival
Friday, July 24-Monday, July 27, 2015

A rare hands-on opportunity to work closely with two recognized dance critics to develop a written voice, experience the reality of writing to a deadline about kinds of dance new to you, and develop observation skills and the ability to write a concise, focused review. Participants will meet in a workshop setting with the visiting dance critics, attend the first Stories concert of the Festival, write an over-night review, re-convene in the workshop setting to discuss and critique the reviews, and then repeat the process with the second Stories concert.

Featured Speakers
