Workshop/Audition with Mare Nostrum Elements

Calling all emerging choreographers for one-of-a-kind opportunity with Mare Nostrum Elements and LaGuardia Performing Arts Center-CUNY.

The EMERGING CHOREOGRAPHER SERIES (ECS) is a FREE mentoring and space grant 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. The work will premiere at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center on Feb. 27 & 28, 2017.

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.
