Starting in 2011-2012 By Dissonance Dance Theatre's Founder Shawn Short with his own finances. Short wanted to give opportunity to young African-American youth. Designed to further the training of interested dance artists, the Trainee Program nurtures and develops dancers between the ages of 16 and 23 years old who are interested in contemporary and classical ballet forms of dance. Selected Trainees have the opportunity to perform at community engagements, artistic events and Dissonance Dance Theatre productions.
Starting at ages 15-23 years old, 6-8 selected trainees take 1 - 2 classes and workshops each Sunday with Artistic Director Shawn Short.
Tuition is $200 a month for approximately 36 weeks (September - May). Classes are currently scheduled on Sundays at 3:30pm.
Interested dancers please send an email entitled “Trainee Program” attached with a body shot and dance resume to Shawn Short at email@example.com. For dancers outside of the age range, please contact Shawn.
Registration is ongoing and classes are held at Flashpoint 916 G St NW.
