WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CHOREOGRAPH?

- Diana M. - Space! Which I now finally have.
- Kimmie D. - Generally speaking: unbridled passion for a vision (commitment, knowledge, skills) + a community of patrons/participants who believe + funding (for logistics, time, space, venue, PR, etc.). It is a juggling act to cultivate all three.
- Anabella L. - As a mother, teacher and immigrant living in NYC, working on a new piece, “No More Beautiful Dances,” I find that what I need the most to choreograph is time: time to improvise, film, take notes, dialogue with collaborators, reframe, and re-perform.
