Just a quick one to let all choreographers and dancers out there know that we’ve just released two calls:
1. The Momentum: New Dance Works 2006 Request For Proposals will go out on Monday. Due date is September 23. If any of you caught this year’s concert at the Southern this year (in July), you know it’s a great opportunity for emerging choreographers in Minnesota. For complete details, check out performingarts.walkerart.org or mnartists.org. The complete RFP should be up by the end of the day. We’ll also be mailing the application to everyone on our current dance list, but get in touch if you don’t get one.
2. We’ve announced audition dates for the 33rd Annual Choreographers’ Evening. Yeah, it’s back and it’s going to be different from years past, since we’re in the McGuire and it’s all good. Curating this year is Mathew Janczewski, one of my favorite people. Auditions take place Friday-Saturday, August 26-27, 4-10 pm, at Hennepin Centre for the Arts. Call the audition line at 612.253.3550 to set up a time. The line should be live by end of day as well.
You heard it here first. Actually, I guess you heard it first on Dana Holstad’s weekly dance email newsletter. Oh, and if you got that email, disregard the phone number. Marshall Field’s jacked a bunch of our numbers and it’ll go to toddler fashions or some such nonsense.
