2017 Call for Choreographers


2017 Call for Choreographers

WHITE WAVE is thrilled to announce our two awe-inspiring festivals: 2017 Wave Rising Series and SoloDuo Festival.



The Application Deadline is February 20th, 2017.
(Early Bird Special: February 1st, 2017)

We are proud to present our 11th Annual Wave Rising Series in association with the 92Y Harkness Dance Center at its historic Buttenwieser Hall. The Wave Rising Series (WRS) is a two-week dance festival presenting 16 rising and eminent dancemakers. This year, we will be including Master classes with the renowned choreographers during the festival.

WRS provides a rare opportunity for highly select dancemakers, through an adjudication process by prominent figures from the dance community, to present programs to NYC’s vital dance audience. The Series fulfills WHITE WAVE’s goal to find, nurture and expand opportunities for highly gifted dance artists. In addition, it functions as an all-encompassing NYC season for artists who may not have the resources to produce a season of their own, and selected companies will be showcased twice in a 20-minute length program.

The Application Deadline is February 20th, 2017.
(Early Bird Special: February 1st, 2017)

In effort to celebrate the art of the solo or duet specifically, whilst creating additional opportunities to expose young and renowned choreographers, WHITE WAVE’s 2017 SoloDuo Festival will be held at the beautiful Poet’s Den Theater. Nestled in the heart of East Harlem, The Poet’s Den Theater is a multi-sensory environment designed to delight audiences with a pleasing and gratifying entertainment experience. The vintage furniture and décor juxtapose a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system to harmonize the theater’s old-world-style and charm, making it an exceptional venue to showcase an intimate solo or duet.
