PRO CLASS
For intermediate and advanced level of training
Dear participants of Riga / ON 2020!
In connection with the circumstances, which we are unfortunately not able to influence, in particular: closing borders, canceling flights, compulsory two-week quarantine for all foreign citizens, the international team of project organizers decided to transfer the intensive to next year.

Riga / ON International Contemporary Dance Workshop will be held from May 1 to 5, 2021.

Such a difficult decision was made now, without waiting for the end of the quarantine regime in Latvia.
All this time we monitored the situation, and at the moment it is obvious that we must prevent the spread of the virus, preserving the health of each participant, which is our top priority.

We are very grateful to each of you for your understanding.
We wish all of you and your loved ones to remain safe and healthy.
Regards, Riga / ON team!
