DanceNOW Festival September 8-11 at DTW

DanceNOW’s annual festival is now in it’s sixteenth season and will be presented from September 8-11, 2010 at DTW. With more choreographers than you can shake a tutu at, it is sure to be a great series of evenings.

Festival Twenty Ten is taking the DanceNOW “less is more” policy to task, challenging Festival participants to create a new work or present a repertory work in seven minutes or less, that offers a concise, clear, and complete artistic statement. The artist that best meets the DanceNOW Challenge will be awarded a week-long residency at Silo at Kirkland Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, along with a $1000 residency stipend, and a paid teaching opportunity at DeSales University, with whom DanceNOW has partnered since 2006 to bring New York City-based choreographer/educators to Bucks County/Lehigh Valley, to teach and perform. The artist will be selected during the Festival by a panel of administrators, educators, and peers. Here’s The Challenge Line-Up!
