CALLING ALL EMERGING CHOREOGRAPHERS for ECS#4

Workshop/Audition with Mare Nostrum Elements

Mare Nostrum Elements is seeking choreographers for the fourth edition of the EMERGING CHOREOGRAPHER SERIES presented in partnership with LaGuardia Performing Arts Center-CUNY. ECS is a FREE mentoring program aimed at providing choreographers with tools to create, develop and premiere a new work. Selected participants will be asked to attend weekly meetings with MNE’s artistic director Nicola Iervasi, in-house director Kevin Albert and fellow participants in order to brainstorm, share and solve issues during the creative process.

Emerging or aspiring choreographers of all ages are welcome!!!

All dance styles and fusions, including but not limited to Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Musical Theater, Tap, Latin/Ballroom, Hip Hop/Street Dance, African and Ethnic Dance will be equally considered.

The audition will follow the structure of MNE signature method The Wave Within and will be conducted in an interactive manner, no need to bring a pre-existing work or own dancers. The Workshop/Audition is also open to performers wanting to discover The Wave Within method and be considered for the program by any of the selected choreographers. Auditioning choreographers can also be considered as dancers.

Pre-registration highly recommended.
