Step 1: Pick up a copy of Pointe's October/November issue, which has just been sent out to subscribers and should arrive on news stands any minute now.

 

Step 2: Sign up for the company's upcoming workshop!

You'll work with Cedar Lake's artistic staff and professional dancers using similar processes that they employ in their own rehearsals. As a bonus, all students will also receive a complimentary ticket to a matinee performance of the company's show at The Joyce. Be sure to sign up soon, since registration will be closed at 40 students per session.
