Skidmore College
Summer Dance Workshop

From May 31 – June 20, 2020, Skidmore College will offer an intensive workshop for pre-professional and professional dancers led by Doug Varone and Dancers. Students will have the unique opportunity to train and perform under the guidance of Doug Varone and his company while enjoying Skidmore’s facilities and the Saratoga Springs community in upstate New York.

Varone and his dancers are widely-known for their ability to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds and they continue to be among the most sought-after ambassadors and educators in the dance field. They are equally at home mentoring the next generation of artists and dance-makers in the studio, or taking audience members deeper into the work through their Exploring Repertory demonstrations. Daily workshop classes will be supplemented by a series of events open to the public.
