NIMBUS DANCE PRESENTS WORK THAT CHALLENGES, SPEAKS TO, AND ELEVATES DIVERSE AUDIENCES
We offer a long-term partnership with New Jersey dance company Nimbus, whose dancers serve as teaching artists in a residency program at The Putney School. During a week-long annual residency, students partake in master classes, engage with the professional dancers, and participate in a signature Nimbus performance in Calder Hall.
Bringing acclaimed repertory as well as excerpts from new dance pieces, the program provides an opportunity for students to learn from professional dancers, who in turn find inspiration from the students they engage with.
Nimbus’ annual performances at the Putney School have been a source of creative inspiration for Nimbus. We use the time at Putney to develop new work, explore new ideas, and showcase previews of works-in-development before their premiere in New York City. It has been truly fruitful to spend time in Vermont in a like-minded, creative setting like the Putney School.”
