ECS 2014-2015 is a FREE 10-week mentoring program aimed at providing new choreographers with tools to create, develop and perform a new finished work in several styles.

Following the structure of our signature method The Wave Within, selected participants will meet weekly with MNE’s artistic Director Nicola Iervasi and MNE’s in-house director Kevin Albert to stimulate their inspiration, engage in our process, create new movement and share ideas and feedback with fellow participants. If accepted the ECS is totally FREE of Charge.

The audition consists of a 3-hour class based on our method The Wave Within. There will be a warm up, followed by some movement exploration to generate a physical sequence, interaction with others and a presentation of the results to the class. We feel this is the best way for us to evaluate your artistry and for you to get familiar with Mare Nostrum Elements.
