5 Rehearsal Days. 4 Choreographers. 1 Performance. You be the judge!

Four emerging choreographers from around the country will compete in VISIONS Winter 2017 Choreographic Competition, performed by Ballet Arkansas company artists. One week before the VISIONS Competition, the choreographers draft their cast of dancers and have just 5 days to set their choreography on their cast. The night of the competition, the resulting works are performed for three judges from the dance community with the audience as the fourth judge. The Visions Winter 2017 competition features guest judge Devon Carney, Artistic Director of Kansas City Ballet.

The competition’s finale is the announcement of the VISIONS Winter 2017 winner, who receives a Ballet Arkansas contract to expand the winning choreography and have it fully produced for performance in an upcoming Ballet Arkansas mixed repertory concert.

The competition offers choreographers an opportunity to have their works seen and appreciated by audiences and the dance community, and to receive a contract to have their choreography fully produced.
