The Emerging Choreographer Series (ECS) is a participatory mentoring program that provides new and aspiring choreographers the tools to create, develop and premiere a new work. Participants receive a modest stipend, free rehearsal space, peer-support, artisitic feedback from stablished choreographers, production and logistical consultations, as well as the opportunity to premiere their work in two evening performances at LPAC. ECS is co-presented with Mare Nostrum Elements.
ECS 2018 Choreographers: Quilan Arnold, Hannah Button, Ann Dragich, Christopher Núñez, Patrick O’Brien (Returning Choreographer), Garrett Parker, Dougie Robbins, Nicoletta Serio (International Choreographer), Zoe Walders
The ECS is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
