This intensive residency offers four artists the opportunity to receive creative, financial, and administrativesupport of a fully produced weekend of performances at Velocity. Choreographers receive up to 45 hours of free rehearsal space for a new project while working with a cast of auditioned dancers.
The project simultaneously offers dancers and choreographers the opportunity to bridge the gap between classroom work and performance while establishing relationships with a choreographer and other dancers.
