“The personal growth that I discovered through this course has changed who I am as an artist. It has opened my eyes to new avenues of movement, dance, and expression. This intensive was not at all easy, but the rigor and effort that was demanded through the ups and downs of the days is what provided the most growth.”
– 2018 Ate9 Summer Course Participant

Each participant is responsible for finding his/her own housing and travel arrangements. However, once accepted we are happy to connect you up with other participants interested in sharing a place!
