Who is AXIS CONNECT for?

Renegades, boundary pushers, passionate discoverers, savvy artists, and dancers with curious spirits. AXIS CONNECT is designed for the emerging professional dancer, to help bridge the gap between school and professional life. We attract artists who want to explore all career possibilities, who understand the importance of networking, and seek to push the boundaries of the industry.

When AND WHERE is Axis Connect?

Exact dates for July/August 2017 TBA soon. Program begins in New York City and concludes in Los Angeles.

how DO I audition?

Auditions will be held in NYC January 21/22 and LA on February 25/26, 2017. Please visit our Auditions page for details. If you cannot attend our in-person auditions, we encourage you to send in a video submission.

Is AXIS CONNECT like Springboard?

AXIS CONNECT is not unlike Springboard in that we help ease the transition to a career for our dancers. We also expose dancers to career opportunities that go beyond the traditional concert dance path. AXIS CONNECT is a comprehensive experience that demonstrates there is no "best" way to approach a dance career. We want AXIS dancers to discover that they can truly carve their own paths.

DOES THE WORKSHOP INCLUDE BOTH NYC AND LOS ANGELES?

AXIS CONNECT is the first dance summer intensive to offer an experience that includes both New York City and Los Angeles. As the two major dance hubs in the US, we feel it important for dancers to experience dance life in both cities.

How do I get from NYC to Los Angeles?

AXIS CONNECT does not automatically book flights from NYC to Los Angeles. However, assistance will be provided upon request via our travel coordinator for a nominal fee. Our travel coordinator is an expert at finding the best travel options, so we encourage attendees to take advantage of this assistance. Email admin@theaxisconnect.com for more information.
