Dance Up Close, part of Engaging Dance Audiences, administered by Dance/USA and made possible with generous funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, is designed to bring online audiences closer to our New York dance community.
Through short HD Videos combining rehearsal footage with interviews, audiences are offered an uncommon entry point to the behind the scenes of movement creation. They are able to see dancers and choreographers, intimately, as people they can relate to - not only abstract figures onstage.
