Dance. Create. Thrive!

*Featuring Tanya Calamoneri of Company SoGoNo

Dance in the Mitten (DITM) is an experiential dance program with both a holistic and aesthetic educational focus. Our mission is to assist dancers in reaching the next level of training and artistry.

We welcome students (ages 12 and up*), emerging artists and professionals. We are oriented to supporting and developing well-rounded, inquisitive, and confident individuals through dance.

The festival capstone is a professional concert performance by People Dancing featuring the student festival participants, with a video salon showcasing the work created by the dance for the camera class participants.

The concert will be held at the state-of-the-art Arthur Miller Theatre at the University of Michigan campus, and will give festival participants the opportunity to watch and experience professional dance first hand.

* 12-15 year olds welcomed with a completed Letter of Recommendation from current dance teacher.
