One of my favorite projects of the year is about to ramp up! Submissions for Rhythmically Speaking 2014 (running August 14 – 16 at the Southern Theater) are due on Friday, April 18th!
Rhythmically Speaking is excited to announce that submissions are open for our 6th annual choreographers showcase. We are proud to support the Twin Cities’ best jazz and rhythm-driven dance each year, and look forward to seeing what you have to offer. Emerging and established choreographers alike are encouraged to apply with new or existing work in jazz and rhythm-based dance. Not sure what we mean by jazz and rhythm-based dance? You tell us. We are excited to be figuring out what that means to this community, and encourage you to join the conversation by applying.
