Create for Dance in the Parks' 15th Season

Choreographers must have daytime availability in June 2023 to set/reset work. The rehearsal process and time spent in the studio is brief; be prepared to work fast. Choreographers have between 5-8 hours with DIP dancers. After the initial setting days with the choreographer, DIP artistic staff rehearses each work leading up to the season performances in July 2023. Rehearsal and performance schedules will be confirmed in April 2023.

Choreographers may stage a new work or restage an existing one. Choreographers must use Dance in the Parks' dancers. Casting will be worked out between the choreographer and artistic staff. Final hiring decisions will be made by the end of March 2023.

Applications due February 24, 2023
