Performance Dance





Performance Dance is pleased to present a Summer Workshop held at The Ballet School of Stamford (, Saturday 4:00PM to 5:30PM from June 6 through July 25; (no July 4th). "We are inspired to bring a community of adult dancers together", said Nancy Schwartz, who will lead the workshop, “to create fresh new summer phrases.  After the successful Spring "Je Suis Charlie" Workshop; we continue to build our art form enabling the individual dancer’s choice, storytelling, and creation.  Each dancer will learn a new dance vocabulary from which to base their own movement; quality and phrasing.  The best part is this is a collective group of dancers who learn as much "together as from each other", says Nancy Schwartz.  The beauty in this studio workshop, is each dancer is so different from their background; experiences; knowledge and appetite.  Every movement is valid in that moment of sharing.  

Framed by the Summer theme, structured with music from Moby;  we will start with a ballet barre warm up; and move quickly to the creative process building phrases.  Aided by simple prompts from Nancy Schwartz; we will work on group and individual movement and learn from each other. 

Nancy Schwartz has an extensive background in both ballet and modern dance over the past thirty years.  A professional dancer and founder of multiple dance companies, she continues her studies in New York and Connecticut. 

We welcome any adult dancer with a basic ballet vocabulary to create with us. Reservations required by May 30 to  Session Cost:  $210.00.  Further information please visit:
