Kaha:wi Dance Theatre says
KDT SUMMER INTENSIVE (SI) is a month-long training program that offers contemporary technique, world Indigenous dance forms, alternative physical training systems, and artistic dialogue for investigating new dance performance.

The objective of KDT SI is to expose participants to the hybrid dance methodology underpinning Artistic Director Santee Smith’s choreographic vision, which is situated at the intersection of Indigenous and new dance performance.

Program Priorities

Diversity – By inviting different internationally renowned senior artists each year to share their unique and contrasting dance methodologies and movement languages with participants. We also emphasize diversity by attracting both Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants keen to develop the physicality to execute both Indigenous and non-Indigenous movement languages.

Flexibility – By offering a variety of registration options to cater to participant needs and interests. We provide drop-in classes for professional and/or senior working dance artists interested in continued physical and professional development; we provide tailored instructor packages for individuals interested in training with a particular artist/specialist; we provide a Creation Lab for individuals interested in digging deeper into their own creative process in a safe, enriching space; or full-time registration for pre-professional dancers who need extended training.

Rigor – By pushing participants to move beyond their physical comfort zones, challenging the mind and body to adapt, change and become more dynamic. The hope this that participants leave KDT SI inspired and enriched by their experience, and a more versatile dance artist.

KDT SI is designed for participants possessing a foundation and/or experience in dance and performance.
