Master Classes provide pre-professional and professional dancers an opportunity to learn from acclaimed dancers, teachers, and choreographers. Led by Pillow Alumni, this master class series is designed to inspire and connect the dancer with our worldwide network of established artists in the field. You will be learning diverse movement approaches from the faculty who will also share their personal Pillow experiences with you. 

Master Classes also serve as an introduction to The School experience and give The School and Program Directors an opportunity to observe applicants, as a pre-screening informative tool. Master Class participation is not required for admittance consideration.

To apply and audition for The School’s programs, submit an application. All School program applicants who apply by January 14 will receive a free master class.

What to Expect

School Directors and staff will greet dancers prior to the classes and observe. Master Classes are excellent opportunities to meet Pillow artists, alumni, and staff, and learn; the atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and inspiring.

Expect to be coached in extending beyond your usual range of artistry and to explore your potential as an expressive, collaborative performer. Warm-ups will be fast-paced and abbreviated, in order to focus on choreography requiring the techniques, styles, and artistic expressivity of the master class genre and Artist Faculty featured.
