Community and Summer Programs
"So much can be said about NJSummerDance . . . thank you for not just helping me along as a dancer but as a human and artist as well." - NJ SummerDance student.

Our multi-touch approach brings audiences closer to the art and artists both onstage and in the studio. Whether at home or on tour, Carolyn Dorfman Dance creates a true “in residence” feel in every community we touch. Community engagement involves performances in theaters and alternative spaces, talk backs, preperformance discussions, master classes, dance intensives, and summer camp residencies. We teach all levels, from the novice to the seasoned professional. The company offers an array of community classes and workshops that connect audiences to the company and its work.
