Join us at our annual informal showing at Place des arts to discover the Resident and
Emerging Choreographers of Springboard Danse Montréal 2019!
Springboard Danse Montréal is a notforprofit organization that connects handselected, elite performers with influential and renowned companies and choreographers from around the world in Montréal. Springboard aids the professional dancer at various stages of their career by providing the skills necessary to transition between school and a first job, by developing broader career opportunities, and by enriching an already burgeoning career with new contacts and exposure. In addition, the project facilitates current and future artistic endeavors between countless dancers and choreographers by nurturing an invaluable network of professional peers. Each company that participates in this unique project is in the position to collaborate with, and potentially hire, the highest caliber of dance artist available. As such, Springboard’s unique value proposition lies in the artistic expertise of its dedicated and experienced faculty in addition to its mentorship opportunities, creating a true ecosystem and global network of artistic peers over a lifetime.
Springboard is committed to facilitating and showcasing the work of today’s upandcoming choreographers. The Resident Choreographer and Emerging Choreographer Projects provide selected artists with elite dancers, 26 hours of studio space with the Springboard dancers plus additional hours to conduct independent instudio research, and the opportunity to present work alongside our Principal Companies. Candidates are selected based on experience and the quality of their previous work. In addition to this unique professional development, Springboard provides each Resident and Emerging Choreographer with the opportunity to engage with talented dancers who may become future collaborators as well as mentors who facilitate the creative process.
