The Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center established Houston Choreographers X6 for Dance at the J to further opportunities for Houston based choreographers and dancers. For this dance presentation program, choreographers and their work will be selected by application. Six choreographers will be selected to present their creations at one performance—Saturday evening February 16, 2019. Applications are due now. Artist selection will be announced by the first of September 2018. Those choreographers whose works are selected will receive an honorarium once the performance is completed. Those choreographers chosen will be responsible for their own expenses (ie: props, dancers, etc.) Please take into consideration when proposing the content of your piece, that the Houston Choreographers X6 Concert is a family oriented presentation. Music and movement must be secular.
