Join us for the Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation's summer workshops in the great city of New York! Each session is 12 full days of training and includes daily Isadora Duncan technique classes, repertory, teacher training seminars (separate application required), video screenings, tunic making, The Metropolitan Museum of Art visit, discussions, and networking.

Session 1: July 18-30  
Session 2: August 1-13 

Location: IDDF Studio in Chelsea, plus a clean and well-lit studio conveniently located in the Times Square area.

Tuition: $1,500 per session; $800 per week. It does not include travel, housing* or meals.

Space permitting, students unable to attend the entire workshop and/or interested in technique classes only are welcome to technique classes, Monday through Saturday, 10am-12pm. Tuition is $150 per week, $290 per session, or $30 single class.


 Classes will be taught by Lori Belilove, the world's leading teacher and performer of the dances of Isadora Duncan, senior members of Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company, and guest teachers. Students will work to increase their technical and expressive capabilities in a positive and supportive environment. The workshop will provide an in-depth immersion into Isadora Duncan technique and repertory, and will culminate in a studio showing.

For the teacher training portion (separate application required and for candidates interested in IDDF Certification) of the workshop we will focus on teaching the Duncan technique to students ages 4-18 and develop lesson plans around nature themes, Greek mythology, and contemporary life that will resonate with today's young dance students. Attention will be paid to selection of music and breakdown of rhythmic structures in dance. 

All students will receive an evaluation and a Letter of Completion at the end of each session from Lori Belilove, Artistic Director, IDDF.
