Main info

Dance Gap Year’s Virtual Certificate Program is a holistic, student-centered & diversified online dance program featuring faculty from renowned institutions including Martha Graham, ABT, NYU, SUNY Purchase & Alvin Ailey as well as some of the contemporary & street dance worlds’ most sought-after dancers & choreographers today.

When: 6th September 2020 – 7th December 2020

Where: NYC, NY, USA


Dance Gap Year (DGY) — certified by the UN International Council of Dance — is the first & only gap year program for dancers. The program is designed for dancers/choreographers at any stage in their career who wish to bring their craft and artistry to the next level. Built around each participants’ unique interests & goals, the program grants participants access to unlimited virtual classes per week in a diverse array of disciplines while hosting regular meetings on Zoom for small group & 1:1 mentorship with our world-renowned faculty.

In addition to honing their craft and technique, participants take Embodied Entrepreneurship (Business 101 for Dancers) with Founder/Director Dominique Robinson and work on building a strong portfolio with Movement Director/Choreographer Zoe Rappaport. Students must complete a final project (i.e. virtual performance, choreography and/or dance film) to receive a certificate from the UN International Council of Dance.

The 150-Hr DGY Virtual Certificate Program is a great opportunity for dancers of all backgrounds who are interested in many styles of movement. If you are a dancer or choreographer whose interests cross-over and/or transcend concert, commercial, college or conservatory — this is a wonderful program for you.

*Post-COVID19 when we are able to travel and gather again, an in-person component will be added to the certificate program. Students who are learning virtually will have the opportunity to come together for a 10-day immersive live dance experience.
