Celebrating our 45th Summer!

New York State Summer School of the Arts (NYSSSA)
 
The NYSSSA School of Dance is sponsored and supported by the New York State Education Department and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. 
 
The School of Dance is held in Saratoga Springs in cooperation with Skidmore College and the National Museum of Dance.  Founding Artistic Director Carolyn Adams has an impressive dance history as a former Paul Taylor Dancer, Juilliard and Alvin Ailey Faculty Member and founder of the American Dance Legacy Institute.  30 students selected through a competitive audition process participate in classes which encompass a variety of modern techniques as well as composition work, repertory and performance.  Choreographers in residence have included Robert Battle, David Parson, Francesca Harper and Danny Grossman.  Students work with these choreographers to learn their seminal works and are encouraged to explore and create their own choreography.
