NACHMO is a yearly choreographic kick in the pants conceived by Sharyn Korey and Anna Brown Massey. Nachmo spurs dancers to choreograph by challenging you to work against a deadline. Choreographers have one rollicking month from January 1st to the 31st to forge new steps and complete their pieces. Learn more about NACHMO at http://www.nachmo.org/events/boston-shows/.
