The Nathaniel Hunt Project
nourishing a legacy
Founded by Nathaniel Hunt in 2018, The Nathaniel Hunt Project’s vision is to nourish a legacy of intimate relationships through movement that inspires change and inclusion through shared human experiences; and to impact the world through the lives of the communities we teach, work with, and collaborate alongside.
The Nathaniel Hunt Project is a global dance hub organization, comprised of the RISE: Summer Dance Intensive, the Choreography Performance Workshop, POP-UP Movement, and more. It has been founded to serve as an ever-growing organization that mentors, educates, and teaches young students through dance, uplift and represent the communities we sprouted from, and provide an opportunity for professional dancers to create and collaborate in a respectful, intimate, and invigorating working environment.
