Working with ClancyWorks to
Design Your Residency Program

We recognize and respect the unique characteristics of each college and university dance community. Our first step in planning a ClancyWorks dance residency is to collaborate with you to design a program aligned with the specific values, needs, and learning goals of your students. Unlimited options are available, but examples of some successful residency models include:

• Choreographic commissions tailored to your students’ technique level and interests
• Company performances
• Half-day or full-day workshops
• Multiple day master class series
• Week-long residencies that can be designed to integrate community outreach

“I was particularly grateful for Adrienne’s highly refined ability to teach our dancers partnering skills. She has a clear, well considered methodology for communicating the foundational principles of weight sharing.”
