Emerging Choreographers Program

The Emerging Choreographers Program was initiated in 1993 to provide gifted US–based choreographers, who are beginning to establish themselves in the field of contemporary dance, with access to the resources of the Bates Dance Festival’s international community of peers. Participating artists, who are selected by invitation, receive a three-week creative residency that includes daily classes and studio time, access to the BDF Archive, Bates College Library and other college facilities, housing meals and an honorarium. Emerging Choreographers develop a new work that is featured on the Different Voices Concert. Past recipients have gone on to receive accolades for their performances at important national venues.
