showcase choreographer information + what to expect


• All dances must be under 4 minutes long, NO EXCEPTIONS 


Choreographers will hold weekly 90 minute rehearsals, suggested to consist of 30 minutes of warm-up/technique/training and 60 minutes of rehearsal. Each choreographer will have up to 12 weeks of rehearsal provided and paid for by CDP. Make up or additional time must be approved by the director, and booked and paid for by the choreographer.


Choreographers are expected to create a professional, yet open and accepting dance family environment within their own rehearsals! Start your season's first rehearsal with an ice breaker/introduction of every dancer so we can all make new friends!


Choreographers must pay the $35 fee to apply. If not chosen to choreograph, it can be applied towards your $50 dancer fee, OR refunded minus a $25 application fee. If chosen to choreograph and you choose to dance in the showcase as well, the $50 dancer fee is waived!


Choreographer Release: As a Cleveland Dance Project choreographer, I approve for Cleveland Dance Project to utilize my choreography and any videos and photos of my work for any purposes they deem fit, including marketing and sales. I am accepting responsibility to meet all deadlines & assume the leadership role to create and teach an original work for Cleveland Dance Project. I understand this is not a paid position, and that I am solely volunteering my time and creative talent for Cleveland Dance Project
