Interested in teaching at Velocity? To teach at Velocity, you have two options:

Option 1: If you want to have a one or two session workshop or masterclass, you can always rent a Velocity studio, and run your workshop or masterclass independently. To do so, please visit our rentals page, or email Shirley Wong at operations@velocitydancecenter.org.

Option 2: If you’d like to be part of Velocity’s training programming, either by offering an ongoing class, or teaching a masterclass, workshop, or CI Fundamentals or Creative Process Series, please email our Executive Director Catherine Nueva España at catherine@velocitydancecenter.org. Please note that as of July 17, 2019, Velocity will be revising its teaching policies and contracts, and so will not be accepting new faculty. If you’re still interested, please check back in again after August 15 for more info.
