the HIVE

Do you have an upcoming choreographic project? Do you want dancers, time and space to explore your movement ideas? Apply to receive a mini-residency through the HIVE, a collaboration of Dance Source Houston and Houston Ballet.

The selected choreographer will receive space at Houston Ballet’s Center for Dance on 4 Sundays in March-April 2020 from 1-4pm to delve into a work in progress. The first Sunday, March 29, will function as a choreography lab that is open to the dance community. Dancers will sign up to take part in the session and the choreographer will offer participants a glimpse into their process of developing work during the 3 hour workshop. The 3 remaining Sundays, April 5, 19 & 26, will be closed to the public and the selected choreographer will use the space and time for closed rehearsals. The final Sunday session will end with an informal studio showing that will be open to the public from 3:30-4pm.

Applications are due Monday, March 2, 2020. All applicants will be notified by March 9, 2020.
