The Joffrey Academy of Dance, Official School of The Joffrey Ballet, announces a national call for artists to submit

Three selected choreographers will be given a minimum of 30 rehearsal hours to set their pieces on the Joffrey Academy Trainees. Each winning choreographer will also receive a $2,500 stipend and an opportunity to work directly with Academy Artistic Directors, Alexei Kremnev and Anna Reznik. Choreographers whose permanent residence is more than 100 miles from Joffrey Tower will be provided with accommodations for the duration of a two-week residency. The completed new works will be performed at the acclaimed Harris Theater for Music and Dance on March 1, 2014.
