"The atmosphere you have created at METdance is nonetheless welcoming, professional, and inspiring. Within the four walls of the studio I felt safe to explore my deepest potentials and take risk without fear of failure. The faculty chosen for the intensive was absolutely outstanding and I can honestly say I will take a piece of their knowledge with me throughout my dance career. I learned so much throughout one short week, not only as a dancer and an artist, but as a person as well. Thank you for the opportunity and experience!" - 2017 Participant
