Join us for a fun, creative day of unpredictable, unpremeditated, spontaneous dance making. Dancers and choreographers will be randomly matched, then given two hours to make a dance to show later in the day. This event is improvisational in spirit, where we can come together, try each other on, and celebrate our dancing bodies!

Interested in improvising, performing and networking all in one event? Apply to participate as a dancer and be a part of a unique choreographic experience.
GUIDELINES: - Dancers will be assigned to choreographers and will work in shared studio space. - There is no guarantee of a small or large group.- Choreographers will have the opportunity to observe dancers during the warm-up class. - After warm-up, participants will divide into assigned studio spaces and begin to create work. - Choreographers have only two hours to make something to show. And something MUST be shown! It by no means, needs to be complete in any way. It does not need a beginning, middle or ending. Work can be chunks, nuggets, phrases, ideas...anything. It just needs to be something created during rehearsal times on February 10, 2019. - This event is improvisational in spirit, so existing repertory is not permitted. - Choreographers will be given the opportunity to present their work-in-progress as the opening of the Show Up & Dance 3pm performance. The showing is just a showing to share the raw artistic aspect of dance with an audience. No feedback will be given. - And NEVER APOLOGIZE for what you show.
