The Encounter is a multi-iteration project for young dancers ages 12-15. The Encounter's first iteration, supported by a 2019-20 Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance, will be cast with 12-15 year old dancers aspiring toward careers in ballet. Future projects will focus on a diverse variety of dance communities of this age.
