Call For Choreographers

Nacre, the Capital Regions premiere modern dance company, is seeking a guest choreographer for it’s 2016-2017 season. The selected guest artist (paid position) will have the opportunity to work with the company in creating an original piece to be featured during the performance season.


Due to an abundance of quality entries in previous years, and in keeping with Nacre’s commitment to showcasing up and coming work, up to 10 submissions will be chosen to have their pieces featured in our third annual So You Think You Can Choreograph!? Competition on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the historic Spa Little Theater in Saratoga Springs, New York. After only two years, this has become one of the most popular dance performance shows in the region. Audience members will vote for their favorite, and the winning choreographer will be offered the guest choreographer position, It’s a unique opportunity to have your work featured and a chance to work closely with this renowned company. In addition to the winners, several finalists have also been hired for work by Nacre. Nacre is a performance organization dedicated to revitalizing historic choreography while opening the arena to new, emerging artists.

The performance is divided into two categories: Local Choreographers and visiting choreographers. Because results are based on live audience voting, you will be asked to describe any ties you may have to the capital region (Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady and surrounding NY counties).
