Applications are now open for both DirtyFeet's 2020 Out of the Studio and Choreographic Lab Programs. With a total of five opportunities available, apply for one or both!

Out of the Studio is an opportunity for emerging choreographers to develop new ideas and a platform to present their findings in a Choreographic Development Season- funded opportunity.

The Choreographic Lab provides a safe environment where emerging choreographers and dancer can come together to explore their creative practice. The Lab builds relationships between artists, facilitates the development of methodology and skills, and can be the first steps towards the creation of new work or continued research. 

See below which opportunity may be right for you.

Both applications close Monday 30 March 2020 and please note there is one round only for both opportunities.
