DI thrives on the creative exchange of ideas, exploration, and opportunities for participants to experience a diverse spectrum of dance/movement disciplines. Dancers expand their skills through daily classes, workshops, discussions, informal showings and performances while meeting world-renowned artists through informal discussions and social gatherings, becoming a part of our extended family of artists.
