Support For Artists
We believe it is critical to give emerging choreographers a platform to share their new work. We work to provide a fair, inclusive, creative, and intellectually stimulating outlet for high-caliber dancers, choreographers, composers, musicians, and designers. We seek to collaborate, inviting opinions and perspectives that enrich the creative processes among all of our artists.
