OPEN REHEARSALS: Mondays & Wednesdays 11am till 2pm
FREE to observe on any of these days at STUDIO K

The Public is always welcome and invited to observe company and 2nd company rehearsals.  During this time we hope to reveal the creative process as we continuously develop new work by our artistic director and various guest choreographers.  During this time we welcome direct engagement where those observing can ask questions and offer commentary.  Some times we organize open rehearsals and invite board members, underwriters, patrons, students and media to observe on a particular day.  Other times interested parties commonly come on their own.
