Each summer Skidmore Summer Dance hosts a top-level modern dance company during the month of June. Award-winning choreographers and their companies are invited to stay on campus, create work in our studios, perform in the community and teach an intensive workshop for pre-professional and professional level dancers. Young dancers in this program have the rare opportunity to study intensely with these world-renowned artists and receive top level training in Skidmore's state-of-the art facilities. A gift to the Summer Dance Workshop will ensure we continue to make this workshop available to aspiring young dancers who lack the funds to pay for this life-changing experience.

Previous resident companies have included José Limon Dance Company Twyla Tharp, Dan Wagoner and Dancers, Trisha Brown Dance Company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane & Company, Mark Morris Dance Group, Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, Taylor 2/Paul Taylor, Garth Fagan Dance, Parsons Dance Company, Ballet Hispanico, Doug Varone and Dancers, Ronald K. Brown\Evidence, Gallim Dance, Take Dance, Susan Marshall & Company and the Martha Graham Dance Company.
