a global Dance Hub For Entrepreneurial Innovation
has been providing international opportunities for emerging & established dancers, choreographers, educators and studios to explore the world through movement since 2014. Our mission is to support dancers' growth & development at all levels through performance opportunities, mentorship, holistic & high-quality dance education and entrepreneurial development. To this day, we have directed, produced and developed dance programs in Argentina, Costa Rica, Tokyo, Jamaica,
and the United States.
We offer performance & choreographic opportunities, individualized dance training,
1-1 mentorship, cross-cultural exchange and entrepreneurship for dancers to support career longevity & sustainability. Exploring one's creative artistry, diversifying training, enhancing performance skills, learning through travel and gaining practical professional development to bring dancers to the next steps in their journey is at
the heart of everything we do.
Today's dancers are more diverse than ever before.
