Axis Connect is a platform for emerging professional dancers, created by the Barton sisters with the purpose of connecting young talent with industry leaders, while also enabling them to work directly with some of the most highly revered artists in the dance world. Attendance is by audition only, and selected dancers are invited to a 2-week intensive summer program held in both NYC and Los Angeles.
Where: Gibney Dance Center NY, LA, USA
NY- Jan 21-22
LA – Feb 26 (Final dates for the Summer 2017 session are TBA.)
This is a rare opportunity to work with some of today’s most sought after directors and choreographers, agents and managers in both the concert dance and commercial dance worlds. Many of our dancers from the 2016 sessions have been employed as a result of our program, having been given opportunities to work with Sonya Tayeh, Cherice and Charissa Barton, The Mowglis, on television pilots, video campaigns, and more. Many of our dancers will work on a short film in collaboration with Barton Movement and Kidd Pivot’s Cindy Salgado. Several of our dancers are now represented by some of the best agents in the industry in both NYC and Los Angeles.
