Choreographic Institute

Choreographic Institute

UNCSA Summer Dance Choreographic Institute is a two-part initiative to support the development of new work by emerging and established choreographers of exceptional promise. UNCSA is giving selected choreographers the opportunity to create new dance works by providing studio space, dancers, mentoring, workshops and a final performance of the work. Through this initiative, UNCSA School of Dance looks to deepen its mission of developing original works, supporting artists and giving back to the broader community.
