BalletCollective’s Commission for Developing Choreographers

March 18

BalletCollective’s Commission for Developing Choreographers is open to members of the dance community who have prior professional choreography experience.

The selected choreographer will be asked to commission, with BalletCollective’s support and guidance, a composer to create an original score for their piece. These two collaborators will then be tasked to work together to identify a “source artist” (any non-performative creator or thought leader) to create or curate a piece of “source art”—a contemporary work of art in any medium—that will serve as the starting reference point for their work. Past source artists have included photojournalists, board game designers, visual artists, architects, and more, and it is through the interpretation, exploration of, and response to the source art that the dance-based work and its score ultimately arise.

The selected choreographer will receive a commission fee that ranges from $12,000-$18,000 based on commission length. Additional commissioning fees are paid by BalletCollective to the selected composer and source artist. BalletCollective will also provide to the choreographer:

  • dance studio space during creative residencies in New York, NY and Millbrook, NY

  • assistance with travel and housing during creative residencies in New York, NY and Millbrook, NY

  • the chance to work with an ensemble of exceptional dancers and musicians
