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.

Artists will be provided a 9-week residency (July 9th - Sept 10th) on the campus of Atlanta Contemporary. Choreographers will work in the Pavilion and incubate, ideate, and create a new work in response to the social/cultural current climate in our communities. Choreographers will also receive access to dancers, feedback/artistic support, production assistance and promotion from Dance Canvas. Resident choreographers will create a 10-15 minute work, with a culminating performance at Atlanta Contemporary September 11, 2022.

Join us for the Mid-summer showing on August 13 and again for the final performance on September 11.
