Choreographer information-

How it works: Sign up is first come, first serve. 10 slots for works (3-5 min. max). Please arrive early to ensure a spot and selection in the show order. 

Space: Small thrust space with chairs enclosing the center of the room. Mirrors will not be covered. Limited lighting. Music must be on an iphone/ipod/CD or live performance (please consider limited space/time).

Expectations: With limited space and time, simplicity is key. Choreography must fit the space. Each choreographer will need to give a title/brief description of their piece. Can opt for feedback after the show in the discussion.

Audience members and choreographers are encouraged to bring writing materials for comments, observations, and feedback.
