Technique & Repertory Classes

Gibney Company offers classes that invite participants to explore the multi-faceted sensibilities of Company dancers and the choreographic model utilized in Gina Gibney’s work. Classes focus on enhancing technical ability, artistry, and contemporary partnering, along with a focus on task-based movement generation strategies.


Gibney Company offers open studios, informal showings, or full theatrical performances to create a platform for artistic exchange and community engagement.
