Chautauqua Connections

One way to become involved in the dance program at CHQ is by becoming a member of “Chautauqua Connections” which sponsors Festival and Apprentice dancers. Dancers (usually in pairs) are connected with sponsors who provide non-financial support along with a home cooked meal, a batch of cookies, a listening ear and having a “special fan” at performances. Information will be sent to enrolled students in the Spring. Contact Susan Helm at or 502.897.3870 for more information.

Choreographic Workshop/MFSO Collaboration

Forest Bethany Latham and Alex CarrazzoneA unique collaborative program pairing the advanced students of Chautauqua Dance with students of the Chautauqua School of Music (voice & instrumental.)  It allows young musicians an opportunity to perform solo & chamber repertoire, and work in a creative relationship with other artists in a dance performance.  This performance takes place at 4pm on Friday of week seven.  Aside from standard repertoire, there is also a possibility for musicians to perform their own original compositions.
