The Pre-Professional Dance Intensive provides rigorous training for intermediate and advanced dancers. This program is an incomparable experience of strong technical training in a curriculum that includes community-building, encourages individual growth, and cultivates dancers’ artistic voice.
Technique, repertory, and composition classes will use the advantages of technology to create and connect with one another as developing artists.
Repertory and creative classes will result in an online performance showcase.
Join us for either one or two weeks of intensive classes. Each week will feature new ways of dancing, creating, and working together.
Come dance with us to build your strength, discover new ways of moving, and dig deep into your creativity while learning with a community of passionate dancers!

Hailed by Philadelphia Inquirer as a "first class talent, superb pianist" and claimed by London's International Piano Magazine that "praises follow her around the world", Ching-Yun Hu, a Taiwanese American concert pianist who is the winner of the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition and known worldwide for her dazzling stage presence and artistry, is joined by two rising Taiwanese piano stars, Natasha Wu and Yao-Wen Chang, in this virtual presentation of piano classics by Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff and Taiwan's own Tyzen Hsiao.
Set in the run-up and aftermath of the 2016 election, Pop brings the Canard County trilogy to a close as Dawn, the young narrator of Gipe’s first novel, Trampoline, is now the mother of the seventeen-year-old Nicolette. Whereas Dawn has become increasingly agoraphobic as the internet persuades her the world is descending into chaos, Nicolette narrates an Appalachia where young people start businesses rooted in local food culture and work to build community. But Nicolette’s precocious rise in the regional culinary scene is interrupted when her policeman cousin violently assaults her, setting in motion a chain of events that threaten to destroy the family—and Canard County in the process.
In the tradition of Gipe’s first two novels, Pop’s Appalachia is full of clear-eyed, caring, creative, and complicated people struggling to hang on to what is best about their world and reject what is not. Their adventures reflect an Appalachia that is overrun by outside commentators looking for stories to tell about the region—sometimes positive, sometimes negative, but almost always oversimplified.
About the Author - Robert Gipe lives and works in Harlan County, Kentucky. Pop is his third Ohio University Press novel. His first, Trampoline, won the 2016 Weatherford Award for Appalachian novel of the year. His second novel, Weedeater, was a Weatherford finalist.

He has contributed to numerous journals and anthologies, is a playwright, and is currently a script consultant on a forthcoming television show based on Beth Macy’s Dopesick.
