Open Call for Choreographers

Boston-based contemporary dance company Boston Dance Theater (BDT) announces an open call for submissions from Massachusetts based choreographers. The company will identify a choreographer from the pool of applicants who will have an opportunity to create an original work on BDT Trainee dancers during BDT’s 2021 spring/summer season. The commissioned work will be performed in a virtual setting as part of the Trainee Program Observation Week. The selected choreographer will participate in an intensive-format residency. During the residency, the selected choreographer will be provided with 10 three-hour creative periods with the trainees to create, develop, and set new choreographic material. The chosen choreographer will receive an honorarium of $1000. The top three finalists will be showcased on BDT’s website and social media.
