A month-long choreography challenge in January 2021!
The January Challenge is the foundation to all that is NACHMO. It is our annual challenge to inspire dancers, choreographers, and movement enthusiasts to choreograph by providing a month-long deadline to complete their work and connect it to a community of peers.
For one month each year, we put aside our excuses, our hesitations, and perhaps our day jobs to work intensely on making dance. Through the online community of fellow NACHMO participants, social media, the blog, and live events, hubs throughout the nation provide opportunities for individual artists to network and collaborate.
Calling all choreographers!
Ways to participate:
1) Choose to participate in NACHMO on your own, determining your own commitment and involvement! Register on the NACHMO site and have a blast! https://www.nachmo.org/register
Throughout the process, in your daily posts on social media, tag @vermontdance and using the #VDAAllTheWay so we can all follow your work!
2) Join the the Vermont Dance Alliance hub! This cohort of choreographers will engage in NACHMO as a community! Register on the NACHMO site https://www.nachmo.org/register and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the group by January 3rd. VDA will guide the cohort throughout the month, giving accountability partners and weekly inspiration. The group will meet all together for support & connection in one online gathering mid-process/mid-month. Then, at the end of the month, VDA will produce a showcase of your works to share your final pieces with the world. Ticket sales from the end of the month showing will act as a fundraiser for VDA!
January 2020 is your choreographic kick in the pants!
