ChoreoLab: CREATE with US!

Event Type
Event Description

ChoreoLab is a one-week residency for professional-caliber dancers looking for a focused creative period with invited choreographers to develop new creations and build artistic networks. Choreographers are chosen by special invitation from DanceWorks Chicago’s Artistic Director. Each dancemaker hand-picks their cast out of the pool of ChoreoLab dancers. Days mirror life at DanceWorks Chicago and start with a morning technique class followed by rehearsal, coaching, and sharing. Be part of a rewarding week of using your technical skills and artistic voice that will be unveiled at a culminating showcase in the Ruth Page Center Theater.

“I expected to meet new people, continue to cultivate my network, and grow in my artistry, all of these were achieved. Along with having fun!”

Combine with any or all of the three DanceForce weeks to take your ChoreoLab experience to the next level!
