International Dance Dialogues (IDD)


International Dance Dialogues (IDD)
Created and Curated by Janet Panetta

International Dance Dialogues (IDD) is a program designed to address the need for New York's developing dance artists to have meaningful interchange with their counterparts and potential mentors from Eastern and Western Europe.  While New York artists are able to see the performances of larger companies like Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal, our artists are rarely able to interact with the creators and performers from these companies in an intimate setting. In addition, lesser-known yet prize-winning and critically-acclaimed European artists do not come to New York to perform due to lack of name recognition, funding and suitable venues; again, access to these artists is very rare for New York dancers and choreographers. IDD provides a venue where substantive professional exchange and even friendships develop, so that significant and often ongoing connections are created.

IDD classes and workshops are listed below, and are also listed on our classes and workshops calendar and description pages.
