Workshop Description

Each 3-hour session includes technique, repertory/exploration/improvisation, and a ‘meet the artist’ discussion.

Jake‘s contemporary class explores efficiency and fullness of movement through the utilization of natural momentum, swing, and curve. Concepts of spinal articulation, bounce, and isolation lend themselves to the understanding and implementation of groove within his movement studies.


Jake Tribus is a recent graduate of the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance. He has worked with artists such as Taylor Swift, Lorde, Backstreet Boys, and Billy Porter. In 2019, he performed in the world-premiere work of Where There’s Form by Aszure Barton in Hamburg, Germany, and most recently performed in the US premiere of A Quiet Evening of Dance by William Forsythe at The Shed in NYC. Additional performances of his include work by: Crystal Pite, Dwight Rhoden, Jiri Kylian, Sonya Tayeh, Barak Marshall, Andrew Winghart, Rauf “Rubberlegz” Yasit, Paul Taylor, and more.
