The New Dance Lab, a partnership between The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission and Johnson County Community College, is accepting applications for 2019.

The New Dance Lab will allow a select group of established and aspiring dance professionals (age 18+) throughout the state of Kansas the opportunity to participate in an intimate one on one and small group professional development experiences in one of the following areas:

This year will also feature a group lighting design workshop for a group of six on Sept. 27 from 9-11am

Participants will also have the opportunity to observe a rehearsal conducted by the corresponding choreographer and receive a pair of complimentary tickets to the New Dance Partners premiere showcase on Sept. 27 or 28. 

This lab seeks to provide an opportunity for local dance company advancement and artistic development through meaningful contact with national choreographers, to raise the profile of dance in the region, and to highlight local talent. We welcome Kansas applicants from all backgrounds and dance disciplines. A small travel stipend may be available for accepted applicants from outside the Johnson County area.

Applications are due by Aug. 19, with notification by Aug. 29.  Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Workshops will be scheduled individually with participants.
