Join our SPRING SEMINAR from May 18th – 21st!

We are looking for professional dancers and students in their University studies (18+) to join us for four days of fun in our home in Groningen, NL. Through our SPRING SEMINAR, we offer our vision and artistic experience to help you grow as a contemporary dancer and deepen your personal and professional development.

With a group of max. 40 participants we’ll start each day with a morning class, followed by a Club Guy & Roni intensive, taught by one of our ensemble members.

In the afternoon you’ll be joined by choreographers Paxton Ricketts and Erika Silgoner and work on a research that you will present and discuss in a group setting. We will work in our studio’s in Groningen and on Thursday night you’ll get a chance to see the current production we are touring, Yara’s Wedding.

Apply by filling out the form below; once we’ve received all necessary information, we will reach out with a link for payment.

Since 2015 she has realized Esklan Art's Factory, creating numerous performances for theaters in Italy, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Panama, Poland, and Brazil. In 2017 Erika was awarded Best Choreographer at the International Solo Tanz Festival in Stuttgart. In 2021 Erika was awarded the RIDCC XL Production prize and the RIDCC Partner Prize from Skanes Dansteater.

Erika is currently working on a new piece for Scapino Ballet, which will debut in Rotterdam in 2023.
