The Next Generation: Kanopy2 & Academy Showcase

Saturday, May 18, 2024, 2PM & 5PM


Watch the next generation of dancers and choreographers in Kanopy’s pre-professional training program, Kanopy 2, and the Kanopy Academy ignite the stage with new ideas, new expressions and original choreography and costuming, developed and built by the dancers themselves.

The Next Generation of Dance is also a special opportunity for members of our pre-professional company, Kanopy 2, along with Academy students, to perform iconic works by Kanopy’s co-artistic directors, Robert E. Cleary, and Lisa Thurrell, who have earned national acclaim for their dancing and their choreography.

Kanopy 2, our second Company, offers a pre-professional training program open to exceptional students of dance by audition. Serious dancers are introduced to an intense vocabulary of classic and modern forms and study with national luminaries shaping the future of modern contemporary dance.
