Creative Movers

Choreographic Initiative

The Creative Movers Choreographic Initiative is a search for the dance makers of the future. Two New York and Tristate-area choreographers will be awarded the creative time and space to produce a new work for the Joffrey Ballet Concert Group.

Choreographers in contemporary, modern, or contemporary ballet styles, are encouraged to apply. Recipients will receive a $2500 stipend for a 40-hour rehearsal process, over a four-week period.

Commissioned works will be fully produced for a New York City theater to provide innovative, emerging dancemakers the opportunity to develop their creative voices. Works will be between 12-17 minutes in length and will include the full company.
