    Performance Project

    A multi-day intensive performance and training project with New York City's master dance artists. A select group of students will be chosen to join us at Peridance for this exclusive opportunity. Each Performance Project is tailored specifically to the artist and their personal creative process. The intensive will culminate in a filming at Peridance's KnJ Theater, with footage provided to each participant.


    This class is part of an ongoing series designed to prepare salsa students for the stage and is geared toward people who are interested in improving their skills at an accelerated pace toward a performance goal. Over the course of 10 weeks, students will train like performers by learning a proper warm-up, technical drills, original choreography, stage directions, costume preparation, and performance techniques. The course will culminate in a recital show at the Peridance black box theater followed by a salsa party. Mucha suerte!
