MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

LIGHT AWARD

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with the impeccable Giordano Dance Chicago and getting to grow and learn from their talent was such an irreplaceable experience. 

Ryan Trotman

Mentorship Program Recipient, Point Park University

So incredibly thankful to be included in a room with such high energy, inspiration, passion, definition, and most importantly love GDC has helped me realize the depth of dance and changed my perspective! Although this company shines a light on jazz dance, I feel as though it helped me grow in every style and even as a person. I'm so proud to have experienced training "from the soul" as Nan Giordano always says! The people I worked with are so unbelievably talented and they will continue to inspire me. I couldn't ask for a better way to build up to my career in the future.
