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, we provide opportunities for individual artists to network and collaborate.
January 2020 is your choreographic kick in the pants!
Together, as the Vermont Dance Alliance, we will create a cohort of VDA choreographers to engage in NACHMO as a community! For accountability, inspiration, support, connection and outside eyes throughout your process.
After you have registered on the NACHMO site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 3rd to be added to the VDA cohort! The group will be able to be in touch with each other throughout the process, with one online gathering mid-process, and one end of the month informal showing to share your final pieces with each other.
Throughout the process, in your daily posts on social media, tag @vermontdance and using the #vdaalltheway so we can all follow your work!
