The Emerging Choreographer Series (ECS) is a participatory mentoring program providing new or aspiring choreographers with tools to create, develop and premiere a new finished work. Thanks to the partnership between LPAC and Mare Nostrum Elements (MNE) participating choreographers receive up to 60 hours of free rehearsal space, artistic feedback from established choreographers, production and logistic consultations as well as weekly meetings to exchange ideas with fellow choreographers. Participants also receive financial aid to remunerate themselves, their dancers, cover the cost of costumes, props and other production expenses. The Program culminates in 2 fully produced performances on Feb. 22 and 23, 2016.
The ECS is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and Queens Council on the Arts with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
