Educating, inspiring and developing through dance


See what our students and parents are saying

  • I highly recommend this program for dancers who want to pursue contemporary dance on the college or professional level. My son studied with Mark Foehringer Dance and the other instructors here for two years, and it was one of the best things he did. He would not be the contemporary dancer he is today if it were not for this program. If you live in the Bay Area (N. CA), check it out.

  • I have so much respect and appreciation for Mark and what his program has to offer. He and his faculty of instructors prepared my daughter so well for college dance. She had the tools she needed in both dance etiquette and technique. She was invited to attend every program she auditioned for, and now is thriving. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Julie Egbert - Parent
  • The most valuable thing I learned from Mark Foehringer was how to be a good professional. Of course I honed things like line, virtuosity, clarity ... things associated with good technique, as well as expanding my artistic interests under his direction. But I learned that it isn't how "good" a dancer I am, but how good a dancer I am to work with that matters. This has been a key factor in building a successful career as a dancer.

Featured classes and events

Contemporary Dance Workshop with Anthony Lomuljo (Guest Artist of Pina Bausch Dance Company and Sasha Waltz)

July 24-26 from 4:30-8 pm
At CCDA (SJSU Dance studios in Washington Square Hall Building
 at San Jose State University)
Workshop fee: $150
About Anthony's workshop in his own words: Going back to basics and the fundamentals of technique.  My class explores many classical modern techniques that are not often explored in todays contemporary world. Using such vocabulary like Jose Limón, Paul Taylor, Martha Graham, Lester Horton and Merce Cunningham as well as other improvisational techniques from Ohad Narharin and William Forsythe, I created a class that is base on technique and movement coordination, used both in classical and modern genres, to help and develop a well rounded artist. Playing with musicality and efficient movement throughout space, this is a great platform to reconnect to basic technique to further gain and explore your own movement vocabulary.  This class prepares your body to develop, strengthen, and help find coordination, that one tends to be unaware of and reconnect to a way of moving efficiently. This gives the dancer the opportunity to warm up the body structure as a whole using stamina and endurance, but engaging their mind and intellect as well to dive further in their technique and artistry.
