Coming Soon!


Dancers are invited to dive into the quirky and athletic world of Hot Crowd through this three day intensive that will focus on modern technique, partnerwork, choreography, improvisation, versatility, and Hot Crowd repertoire.


Participants will participate in two sessions of repertoire from season 7 & 8. Rep session 1 will focus on a group ensemble work while session 2 allows dancers breakout into smaller groups and work independently with Hot Crowd Company artists exploring the diverse rep of our duets, trios, quartets. We will end with a studio showcase for friends and family as well as a talkback session discussing any questions or comments about the works or dance in the world today. 


We look forward to dancers joining us July 12th-14th at Definition Dance Academy (2525 N Elston Ave Chicago, IL 60647) from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm Friday - Sunday. 


Not available all three days? Join us for at least one if not two of them at a lower price!

Reviews From The Intensive 2023, Past Workshops & Residencies

The Hot Crowd Intensive was truly a magical experience! Devon and Brittany were incredible leaders, providing us with a revitalizing weekend filled with curiosity, exploration, and inquiry. I am honored to have been able to partake in the dynamism of Hot Crowd’s candidly athletic, yet quirky repertoire. I sincerely hope to work more with this company in the future! -Mary M.

Hot Crowd has opened my eyes to so many new possibilities with my dance career! I felt as if I was learning so much in the short span of time we were all together, like my head was going to explode. I am so thankful for Devon, Brittany, Lindsay, and Kyra because of how they showed so much love and care towards us a human beings, not just as dancers!

Spending the week learning from Hot Crowd was such a special experience. Exploring deeper into the world of partner work and finding more expression in my dancing are skills I will use my whole life. Devon, Brittany, Kyra, and Lindsey were all so kind, thorough, and intelligent in their teaching. I felt so free dancing their movement style. Thank you, Hot Crowd, for this beautiful learning opportunity!
