Calling All Emerging Choreographers!
NATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHIC COMPETITION
The development of new work is important here at Hubbard Street, and in line with that mission, every year the organization announces a call for entries to its National Choreographic Competition.
Through this annual competition, Hubbard Street identifies emerging choreographers to create original works for HS2, the second company of the internationally acclaimed Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Hubbard Street is committed to working with artists of diverse experiences and backgrounds and utilizes the National Choreographic Competition as a way to bring new voices into the repertoire.
The National Choreographic Competition (NCC) provides emerging choreographers two to three week artistic residencies, giving uninterrupted studio time and access to a world-renowned dance institution’s training company. Such invaluable resources are almost undoubtedly beyond the means of these young artists without this contest sponsored by HS2.
The winners collaborate with HS2 in-studio, teach master classes, and give informal showings of their works-in-progress. Residencies may take place in Chicago or elsewhere in the United States with HS2 partners.
Throughout the year, NCC winners receive local, national, and international exposure as HS2 performs their creations, leading to additional opportunities for commissions and furthering the careers of these promising choreographers.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago announces a call for entries to its 15th annual National Choreographic Competition (NCC). The NCC seeks to identify emerging choreographers to create original works for Hubbard Street 2, the second company of the internationally acclaimed Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2014.
Selected choreographers will participate in a two- to three-week residency during the 2013-14 season to create an original work for some or all of the dancers of Hubbard Street 2. Residencies may take place in Chicago or elsewhere in the United States with HS2 presenting partners.
