Teaching Residencies and Workshops


“Mentorship is an important aspect of my work as a dance educator. Mentoring a dance student requireteachings a deep investment involving the student, their peers, and the teacher. The studio operates as an interrated collective of individuals who support each other’s daily successes.”                                                               – Marcus on Teaching

 White Werx has been in creative residence and had teaching engagements in pre-professional training centers such as Penn State, Oakland University, Wayne State University, University of Michigan, University of Montana, Duke University, and the American College Dance Association.
