New York International Choreographic Competition

With this inaugural season the aim is to serve the dance community as a vehicle for the evolution of dance as an art form, via the identification of choreographers who display and demonstrate work and creative aptitude of high-artistic merit and promise. The primary cornerstone of our mission,is anchored in providing choreographers with a forum that offers the resources needed to get new work generated and seen, providing the feedback, networking, press and tools to realize a produced piece of dance to various audiences, as well as a valuable exchange of ideas with creative colleagues.

The development of new work is important to the longevity and survival of ballet as an art-form. Inviting submissions in both classical or contemporary form, the New York International Choreographic Competition seeks to identify innovative and talented emerging and mid-career choreographers to engage and enchant an esteemed and influential jury, the New York dance audience and media in three exciting evenings on a Manhattan stage! Cash prizes and featured future choreographic commissions with be awarded at our star-studded gala evening, along with an encore performance alongside ballets biggest stars of today.
