chuthis. movement intensive

August 6-11, 2018
Las Vegas, Nevada—Bunker Dance Center

We are thrilled to be once again holding chuthis. Movement Intensive this summer! Our faculty for this edition will be Artistic Director Peter Chu, along with company members Jenni Berthelot, Krystal Matsuyama, & Jillian Meyers. 

This year, dancers will be accepted by AUDITION ONLY (more info below). 


Group A - Ages 14 & up
35 dancers total

Tuition - $850
(Does not include accommodations, transportation, or food.)

This group will have classes in Ballet, chuthis. Ideas, Qi-gong, chuthis. Repertoire, Body Maintenance, and Grooves. 


Group B – Ages 19 & up
11 dancers total
Tuition - $500 **

(Does not include accommodations, transportation, or food.)

Our goal with this group is to provide an intimate experience, during which they will integrate fully with chuthis. company members. These dancers will partake in a typical chuthis. week, where they will join in a creative choreographic process with Peter and receive a taste of how we work as a company. 


**We are providing a discounted tuition rate for Group B, as it is geared toward a more mature dancer – one who is joining or currently in the professional dance industry – where funds and resources are often limited. 


BOTH groups will participate in daily talkbacks, a few fun extracurricular activities, and an in-studio showing on August 11th.
