Workshops assist the pursuit of deeper levels of exploration into new dance processes, techniques, and ways of thinking and working, for faculty and students alike. Workshops are scheduled during MELT (Summer and Winter Intensives), in conjunction with the Movement Research Festival and at various times throughout the year. See registration requirements under individual workshop listings. Payment can be made online, and by check or cash. Refunds are available up to 48 hours before the start of a workshop, less a processing fee of $25 for workshops $50 and over, and $15 for workshops under $50 (please note that this is different than MELT policies).

Pre-registration is strongly advised! Contact us to discuss your ideas for a workshop. . . workshop descriptions
