PROGRAM SHOWCASES EXCITING NEW WORK BY EMERGING CHOREOGRAPHERS WHILE MENTORING THEM IN THE ART OF BUSINESS
The Jersey (New) Moves! Fellowship offered by NJPAC and Dance New Jersey allows dancemakers to stage original works while developing skills vital to career development
NEWARK, N.J. (May 17, 2017) – Jersey (New) Moves!, a collaboration of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) and Dance New Jersey, has lent a strong supporting arm to emerging choreographers since 2015 by awarding mentorships that conclude with a showcase of new works at NJPAC.
Through a process that begins with an online application judged by a panel of independent dance professionals, up-and-coming talents from New Jersey are given the rare opportunity to transform their choreographic ideas into fully staged productions. Dancemakers are guided each step of the way by a partnering mentor, who assists in shaping the dance work, from music and casting to costuming and lighting design.
