ChEckiT!Dance Now Accepting Applications for 4th Annual ChEck Us OuT Dance Festival
ChEckiT!Dance is now accepting applications to the Fourth Annual ChEck Us OuT Dance Festival: A Celebration of Female Choreographers, an eco-friendly evening of dance celebrating female choreographers,to be held in Central Park. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 9, 2014 and the application form is available at www.checkitdance.com.
The Fourth Annual ChEck Us OuT Dance Festivalis an opportunity for choreographers to have their work seen in the beautiful surroundings of Summit Rock in Central Park. Last year's festival was a carefully-curated event featuring thirteen innovative female choreographers. Choreographers are encouraged to submit pieces from any genre of dance that can be adapted to an outdoor space. The festival seeks to showcase the talents of strong female choreographers in a welcoming, fun environment.
ChEckiT!Dance is an all female modern dance company based in New York City founded by Artistic Director, Allison Brzezinski in 2010. Through the creation and production of new works that seek to empower women and explore what it means to be a woman, we seek to create a crack in the stereotypical infrastructure of female archetypes and standards most commonly portrayed on stage. It is our goal to both promote awareness and gender equality through our own work and provide a platform for emerging female choreographers and dancers to share their talents.
Under the leadership of Allison Brzezinski, ChEckiT!Dance utilizes improvisational and collaborative movement techniques. Company members are given phrase material or written material to work with, from which they create, adapt, and devise their own movement. Each dancer has their voice heard in the company, and their individuality and creativity is vital for the company as a whole. This collaboration forms a community of female artists, working together without competition or stress. We are women working together to make change happen, inside the studio and out. www.checkitdance.com.
