Applications for Cleveland Dance Project’s Season 4 Showcase Choreographers are now open! Seeking choreographers ages 18+ in any style of dance looking to set their work on our adult dancers (beginner-professional) for our showcase on May 4 at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School.
Interested parties must submit a complete application online, including an introduction video including an example of their work or a snippet of the choreography they are hoping to set. They must be available for a meeting Sunday Jan 13, dancer auditions Sunday Jan 27, and tech/dress/show May 2-4.
SHOWCASE CHOREOGRAPHER INFORMATION + WHAT TO EXPECT
• All dances must be under 4 minutes long, NO EXCEPTIONS
Choreographers will hold weekly 90 minute rehearsals. Each choreographer will have 12 weeks of rehearsal provided and paid for by CDP. Additional time must be approved by the director, and booked and paid for by the choreographer.
Choreographers are expected to create a professional, yet open and accepting dance family environment within their own rehearsals! Start your season’s first rehearsal with an ice breaker/introduction of every dancer so we can all make new friends!
Choreographers must pay the $35 fee to choreograph. If they choose to dance in the showcase as well, the $50 dancer fee is waived!
Choreographer Release: As a Cleveland Dance Project choreographer, I approve for Cleveland Dance Project to utilize my choreography and any videos and photos of my work for any purposes they deem fit, including marketing and sales. I am accepting responsibility to meet all deadlines & assume the leadership role to create and teach an original work for Cleveland Dance Project. I understand this is not a paid position, and that I am solely volunteering my time and creative talent for Cleveland Dance Project.
