Kizuna Dance:

Open Intensive 2024

Aug 05 - 09, 2024

Mark Morris Dance Center

Artistic Director Cameron McKinney and Kizuna Dance company members are thrilled to offer the NYC dance community a WEEK of FREE, DAY-LONG Contemporary Floorwork Intensives through our Open Intensive Program. Program is open to both pre-professional and professional dancers. 


  • Take up to TWO intensive workshops for FREE

  • Experience the company's mix of floorwork, streetdance, and capoeira

  • Connect with the dance community in a welcoming space



Each day consists of two contemporary floorwork-oriented technique sessions (10am - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm). Participants can register through the button below for up to any TWO technique sessions. For example, you may register for a morning session on Monday and an afternoon session on Friday, a morning and afternoon technique session on the same day, or just one session. Registering for any more than two days will result in you only being registered for the first two available sessions you selected. Registration opens on July 01, 2024 and closes on JULY 29, 2024.

Most classes will be lead by Kizuna Dance's Artistic Director Cameron McKinney, and some will be lead by current Kizuna Dance company members. The teachers for each class slot will be announced closer to the intensive start date. Join us to learn excerpts of the works that company performs while on tour. 

NOTE ABOUT REPERTORY LEVELS: ALL sessions throughout the week are open to any and all movers. Our goal in labeling the level of each of the afternoon sessions is so that dancer will be not be surprised at the movement's complexity. We encourage you to sign up for any level you feel fit, to be ready to be challenged, and to use the session as a free opportunity to explore your own movement practice!
