ABOUT SUNDANCE 2020

Hosted primarily via Zoom, the online format of SunDance maintains the integrity of our unique combination of RAD Ballet and Limón Modern taught with live musical accompaniment, supplemented with revolutionary dance-based Conditioning methods, Improvisation & Composition, and Jazz (Program B only).

We are thrilled to introduce NEW biweekly Dance Discussions, moderated by a series of guest experts, covering topics such as Injury Prevention Management, Optimal Nutrition for Dancers, the Art of Stress Management, and more.
