Young Choreographers Showcase and Prize 2017
San Diego Dance Theater Young Choreographers Showcase and Prize
Saturday, March 4, 2017
5:00 pm & 8:00 pm
Jean Isaacs has long been committed to nurturing the next generation of dancers and choreographers. Nowhere is this more evident than in the annual San Diego Dance Theater Young Choreographers Showcase and Prize, which this year features many new faces.
Each year, local dance makers ages 18-35 submit performance videos and the final participants are selected by an esteemed curatorial team led by Jean Isaacs (Artistic Director San Diego Dance Theater), George Willis (Professor Emeritus, SDSU School of Music and Dance and co-founder of the San Diego Dance Theater) and Margaret Marshall (SDDT Board member and founder of the Dance Program in the UC San Diego Department of Theater and Dance).
A panel of four qualified expert judges - and the audience - will award $2,000 in prizes in three categories: "Audience Favorite," "Most Original Choreography," and "Most Compelling Performance by a Single Dancer." Eleven choreographers will compete in this energizing and exciting evening of new dance.
The grand prize for Most Original Choreography will be a fully-produced evening of the winner's choreography at our 2018 Live Arts Fest.
Each audience member also has two votes - Your Vote Counts!
