The June installment of SHDF: ChoreoLab will be facilitated by Melissa West, S.I. based choreographer/curator and Senior Director of the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art. West is a dance artist who utilizes improvisation as a method to instigate creative potential. West will lead a collective warm-up followed by exercises tailored to generate creativity and dialogue around each other’s work. We will then shift into an open space for sharing new material, ideas, and conversation.

This series is open to dancers, choreographers, and movers of all levels, though having some experience in dance and performance is recommended.

SHDF ChoreoLab, a series under the Snug Harbor Dance Festival and PASS: Performing Arts Salon Saturdays is made possible in part by the Howard Gilman Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Additional support is provided by the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Snug Harbor is a proud partner with the CUNY Dance Initiative.

The CUNY Dance Initiative receives major support from the Howard Gilman Foundation and Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Additional support is provided by the SHS Foundation, Harkness Foundation for Dance, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
