Through a series of classes, research labs and collaborative rehearsal experiences, the IGNITE program aims to help artists understand a new scope of their own creative possibilities.

The Professional Stream is for ages 18+* with a minimum 3 years of high level dance training in any style and a minimum 1 year of professional, paid dance performance/creation experience OR currently attending a post-secondary dance training institution.
