OpenUp provides an invitation to an open rehearsal with Warehouse Dance and introduces dance artists who are new to New York to helpful resources, classes and workshops in the field to jumpstart their creative careers.

Dante Brown and collaborating artists will allow space in rehearsal to discuss your goals, provide a toolkit for achieving those goals and connect you to others in the dance community.

Career Advice on Where To Begin

Dante & collaborators will give expert tips on appropriate first steps in the NYC dance world, depending on your interests, strengths and objectives. Which workshops should you invest in? What studios are your best fit? Where should you apply to show work?

Discounts to Get You In The Door

When available and appropriate, we’ll provide discounts for five classes at Gibney Dance or 10 hours of rehearsal space. Offsetting the costs of artistic resources in the city provides greater room to create.
