Producing a show in New York is many choreographers’ Mount Everest: the ultimate challenge, the ultimate dream. The Capezio A.C.E. Award, presented by DanceMedia, will give one talented dancemaker $15,000 to use toward their own NYC performance. Two runners up will recieve $5,000 and $3,000, respectively. Previous winners include Travis Wall and Peter Chu.
All you need to do to enter is submit a short clip of your choreography on dancemedia.com. Fifteen finalists will be invited to New York to show their work in front of a panel of influential artists at the Dance Teacher Summit which runs from July 27–29. Your first major show could be just one upload away.
