10 Reasons to Join a World Dance Movement Workshop.

2 Mar



Events in fantastic locations around the world. 

Every year we provide you with the possibility to travel to international destinations while growing as a dancer and individual. Jump on board and let’s dance!


International Faculty Members.

At WDM workshops you will study with top choreographers and master teachers from several countries including Israel, Spain, France, England, Italy, Canada and USA. This will allow you to get to know how dance is experienced in different countries and across different cultures.


Dance Scholarships.

Thanks to our supportive sponsors we will award over $500,000 in dance scholarships at WDM events. Our International WDM faculty will award them while observing dancers during all WDM classes.


Cultural exchange.

At each WDM event you will experience the local culture as well as the one of your international faculty members and of dancers from over 25 countries. You will have the chance to learn words in different languages, find out how the dance scene/industry is in other countries as well as discover the study and professional opportunities you might have in other countries.


Networking opportunities.

World Dance Movement events are the perfect place to showcase your talents and network with our choreographers (several of whom are also artist directors of their own dance companies). And let’s not forget about the audition opportunities!


Performance opportunities.

Every World Dance Movement event ends with an exciting outdoor performance on a beautiful stage. You will have the chance to show what you learned throughout the week in front of dance professionals, parents, friends as well as locals who come to enjoy our shows.


Full and real class setting.

All World Dance Movement events have complete 1h and a half to 2h dance classes in a real class setting (studios with mirrors and dance floor).



World Dance Movement events provide you with the option to explore the country you are visiting and enjoy yourself during your downtime. You can sign-up for one of our extracurricular activities or venture on your own to see what our event locations have to offer.


WDM Family.

At World Dance Movement we are all part of a big dance family. We dance, explore, eat and laugh together. From the very first moment you arrive at check-in, regardless of you coming with your own group or by yourself, you will immediately feel part of our dance community. #WDMfamily


Intimate classes with one-to-one attention.

Our commitment to you: To provide an intimate class environment where you will have the opportunity to receive personal attention in a non-competitive environment. Teachers will observe you and provide you with corrections and feedback throughout the week.

MartzCDC Audition Workshop

In the 6-day workshop you will work with Eva Martz, director and choreographer of Martz Contemporary Dance Company. You will study repertory work that will allow her to look at your theatrical attitude, interpretation and improvisation skills as well as your creativity and technique. The piece of repertoire chosen will depend on the number of students in the workshop as well as the male to female ratio.


Martz Contemporary Dance Company creates dance through experimental studies of movement and emotion combined. It performs the task of elaborating unique pieces, which are transformed by the dancers in a different way each time it is presented. The Martz Contemporary Dance Company stands for truth and honesty in the stories that are told from the soul, and creep into the awareness of the public.

Our mission is to create noise in the dance world using the choreographic style of Eva Martz. We aim to inspire thought and reflection on subjects that may not have received this treatment otherwise.

We want to unit dancers in a supported environment and get to know them, their movement and their most important issues.
