Program Type: Dance gap year [new york]

application deadline: 12/10/2021

Program Dates: 01/18-4/18 2022


Dance Gap Year's residency Certificate Program is a holistic, student-centered & diversified virtual dance program designed to meet the needs of today's versatile dancers.

Our faculty comes from renowned institutions including NYU, ABT, Martha Graham, SUNY Purchase & Alvin Ailey to some of the contemporary & street dance worlds' most original dancers & choreographers today.

Progress is tracked throughout the program and all students must complete a final project (i.e. virtual performance, choreography and/or dance film) to receive a certificate from the UN International Council of Dance.

Certificate students take virtual classes per week and meet regularly on Zoom for small group classes with our faculty. In addition, students take Embodied Entrepreneurship: Business 101 for Dancers with Founder/Director Dominique Robinson and  Mentorship 4 dancers with Creative Director/Choreographer Zoe Rappaport

to work on building a strong portfolio. 


The 150-Hr DGY Virtual Certificate Program is great for dancers of all backgrounds who are interested in many styles of movement. If you are a dancer who doesn't know whether to take a commercial, concert, college or conservatory track because your interests are broader than that —

This is a wonderful program for you.
