OPEN CALL PROCESS: LEAD AN ADULT PROGRAM WORKSHOP
Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (SADC) in Berkeley, CA has an Open Call process for current staff, community members, and visiting artists to pitch ideas for an upcoming adult level workshop. This is an ongoing process for the organization and for programming. It is intended to broaden class offerings and hire an expanded roster of teaching artists, both local and visiting.
Pitches are welcome for in-person, online, and hybrid workshops of all levels and styles of dance as well as lecture-based workshops. Past workshops through SADC have included Intro to Modern, Dunham Technique, Gaga, Hip-Hop Fusion, Somatics+Ballet, Bhangra, Drag, and Feldenkrais, to name a few. Workshops can vary - from one afternoon (2 hours in length) to a 6-week session, meeting once a week.
Ideas/pitches accepted on a rolling basis. Complete the Interest Form HERE.
