Downtown Dance & Movement, a state of the art dance facility in downtown Los Angeles is excited to announce a new opportunity for choreographers: “Dance in Progress.” Dance in Process is a new regular showcase for choreographers to show works in development in front of an audience, to see what works and what needs work, and develop their audience.
Selected choreographers will have up to 10 minutes to show work in a shared evening, and have 2 minutes prior to showing to talk to the audience about what they are going to share, and any other information like upcoming performance dates, specifics about their development process etc. The show concludes with a panel discussion so the audience can share their experience and any feedback the choreographers request.
Participation is absolutely free, and includes the services of DDM’s technical director to run sound and insure a successful show for all. We intend for Dance in Progress to develop into a reliable cost effective opportunity for choreographers to test ideas, grow their following, and get feedback from their peers. Participating choreographers will be required to be active marketing partners so the showcasing choreographers have a great supportive audience, and DDM can continue to offer this great opportunity.
DDM has 4 large studios and 2 that combine into a lovely performance space with sprung floors and raised seating. The performance space is approx.1300 square feet.
Participating choreographers are welcome to bring someone to document their performance via photo and video.
