Dance Canvas Summer Artist Residency: Midsummer Performances
The Summer Dance Residency choreographers present their in-progress works. Each choreographer will share their performance that they began conceptualizing in July.
Dance Canvas and Atlanta Contemporary are embarking on the 3rd year of the Summer Choreographic Residency.
Both organizations are strong believers in the power of art and the strength of artists’ voices to heal, make commentary, lift spirits, inspire hope, and demand change. Dance Canvas and Atlanta Contemporary are offering resources to support dance artists in metro Atlanta. The residency is designed to provide metro Atlanta-based choreographers with a platform for creation and presentation of works reflecting our communities and to be a creative outlet for dance artists while supporting and amplifying diverse voices.
Check back on this event for a performance schedule.
Midsummer Performances are free, but we highly encourage you to pre-register so we know how many attendees to expect.
Performances will be outside on the open-air Pavilion. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and consider bringing a personal water bottle. Water bottles will be available and the air-conditioned indoor space will be accessible for the entire event.
