THE 2022 FESTIVAL

CONCERTS

'Stampede...Ohm' choreographed by Francisco Gella, performed by 2019 NCDP Festival participants, captured by Dave Brewer.

Our three festival concerts bring together world premieres by the Zeitgeist Dance Theatre Second Company, and captivating work from 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 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.
