Who We Serve
Our Onsite Education Program serves all ages and levels of dancers. Eveoke is dedicated to providing the benefits of intention-based dance to a diverse public. Eveoke teaching artists are committed to giving students the personal attention needed for maximum achievement, welcoming everyone who has a heart for dance, and providing a safe nurturing, and inspiring environment. Beginning dancers and professionals alike can benefit from Eveoke training.
What We Offer
At our North Park studio, we offer classes in Eveoke Modern technique, Ballet, Jazz, and Hip Hop. Occasionally we offer specialty classes such as Stretch & Strength, Choreography & Composition, Movement Expression, and Yoga. Click on our Current Class Schedule to see what classes you can take right now. All of our classes are drop-in and you can just show up! You do not need to register for an entire session.
All classes are taught in an expressive vein emphasizing strong technical development for the body’s protection and longevity. Eveoke educates the individual dancer’s body as her or his artistic tool, honing and nurturing physical and emotional potential with great detail and depth. The premise of Eveoke technique works from a six-part center built off of the body’s natural triangles and created and honed by our founding Artistic Director, Gina Angelique. Influences on the Eveoke technique are diverse, including Graham, Limon, Horton, Duncan, McKayle and Alexander methods. Eveoke teaching artists perform in the Concert Company and Outreach Performing Group throughout the year as part of the annual season of original full-length works and assembly shows. This ensures students will have exceptional instruction.
Dress Code and Studio Etiquette
Eveoke is committed to a safe space where everyone is welcome no matter what. Please adhere to utter respect and kindness while you are in our space. There is no specific dress code as long as you can fully move in what you wear. Loose pants, sweats, shorts, and leggings are all great. You are welcome to bring jazz or ballet shoes, but the majority of dancers here dance barefoot or in socks.
At Eveoke, one of our core values is access. We believe everyone should have access to dance, whether or not they can pay full price. We also have a Work Trade Program for those who can trade 1 hour of work for 1 dance class. If you are interested in dancing at Eveoke and have concerns about payment, please visit the Tuition Assistance page for more information.
Eveoke is dedicated to providing an inclusive environment to youth and adults with and without disabilities. Eveoke teaching artists have been trained in accommodation for dance and we are often able to provide inclusion aides for those who need extra support. Please talk to a staff member at Eveoke if you are interested in finding out more about this.
Performance opportunities are abundant at Eveoke. Gifted dancers can audition to train and perform with the Apprentice Company, Outreach Performing Group, and/or Youth Performing Group. Most notable is the inclusion of Eveoke’ students in professional performances given by the Eveoke Concert Company. Students have the chance to audition regularly for Eveoke’s season of performances, and often dancers of all types and levels are chosen for various roles. Students then benefit greatly for the opportunity to perform with the professional Concert Company, often in month-long runs at San Diego’s major theatrical venues. Dancing with Eveoke’s Concert Company is by invitation only, after 1 year of training at our onsite studio.
Eveoke offers a 2-year intensive teacher training program and is the quickest pathway to getting hired at Eveoke. The program combines dance education with social activism and is appropriate for teaching artists of all levels who want to facilitate or teach dance in some way. The program is also great for classroom teachers who wish to use dance more regularly in their classrooms.
