The 2020 Festival Intensive
Our three festival concerts bring together a diverse group of professional, emerging, and student choreographers from across North America who have been selected from a talented pool who submitted their work for consideration. The artists who are selected represent some of the best of our collective dance future. The work of the student choreographers takes the stage on Thursday, August 13, Leona Wagner Black Box Theatre; professional and emerging choreographers on Friday, August 16, Jeanne Wagner Theatre; and our resident and guest professional companies for the Festival Gala Concert on Saturday, August 15, Jeanne Wagner Theatre. The work of all choreographers – with the exception of those noted – will be adjudicated and selected artists will be awarded choreographic commissions. As a primary objective of New Century Dance Project is to nurture artistic talent, all choreographers will receive critique from an expert panel of experienced dance makers. All festival student participants will attend these shows as part of the educational program, and in the case of Friday and Saturday’s Concerts, will perform the new choreography they learn during the week.
