Young Choreographers Showcase & Prize

Home/Performances/Young Choreographers Showcase & Prize

Young Choreographers + Invited Guests
June 11-13, 2021

Last year, everything shut down the day before we had planned to hold the Young Choreographers Showcase & Prize. We never expected the pandemic to last this long. We are happy to announce that we are hosting a Young Choreographers + Invited Guests performance in June on our outdoor stage at Liberty Station. In collaboration with Malashock Dance and San Diego Ballet, the outdoor stage will have programming from the three companies for four weeks in May and June.

The performance will have two parts: the first part will include invited guest artists who were unable to perform in last year’s Live Arts Fest or SDDT Showcase. For the second part, selected Young Choreographers finalists will present work and be able to compete for prizes in three categories: Best Overall Choreography, Best Dancer, and Audience Favorite (as voted on by the audience at all shows).

Young Choreographers presenting: Luci Salinas, Kevin Truitt, Odessa Uno
Invited Guests presenting: Mayra Barragan | GATONEGRO, H2O Dance Company, Dance Fierce soloist Maya Allum with choreography by Mario Jaimes, Mitchum Todd

June 11 & 12 at 6:30pm, June 13 at 2:30pm

$30 General Admission
$25 Students, Seniors, Military

San Diego Dance Theater annually seeks young dancemakers to participate in the Young Choreographers Showcase & Prize, a competition that awards three prizes to participants: Best Overall Choreography, Best Dancer, and Audience Favorite (as voted on by the audience at both shows). Young choreographers of all dance styles are invited to apply.

There will be a Call for Artists in the fall of 2021 for a 2022 performance. More details to come.
