Welcome Apprentice Catherine Cooch!

This past summer Ms. Cooch attended RIOULT Dance NY’s Summer Intensive 2013, soon after, the Company was auditioning for a female apprentice.
After a grueling audition process alongside 216 dancers, Catie became our new apprentice! We are thrilled to have her on our team!  Read her bio here.
I feel so fortunate that I was selected to be an apprentice at RIOULT Dance NY.  The Summer Intensive I took with the Company prepared me for the audition process and gave me a clear advantage over other dancers unfamiliar with Pascal Rioult’s choreography and process. The RIOULT Summer Intensive is an outstanding way to help prepare any dancer for a professional dance career.

RIOULT and Quad City Arts

In January 2012 RIOULT was part of The Visiting Artist Series which brings artists of international acclaim to the Quad City region.  As part of the Series, the Company participated in a one-week residency that allowed RIOULT to reach thousands of kids, through Lecture Demonstrations in schools.  The kids had the opportunity to experience modern dance, many of them for the very first time.  The residency concluded with a public performance at the Galvin Fine Arts Center.

Below are photos of some of the kids watching RIOULT’s lecture demonstrations in schools throughout the Quad City Region.
