In addition to a multitude of open classes, we offer many exciting workshops year-round. Workshops and master classes at Peridance offer a unique opportunity for students to observe and experience the technique and repertory of major choreographers, master teachers, and directors from across the globe. They also serve as a platform for participants to be seen by these teaching artists; many of our students have been asked to perform after having been seen in a Peridance workshop!
