JUMP/Mentorship is an ongoing competitive mentoring program targeting mid-career/experienced dance-artists who wish to deepen the quality of their work and process.
THIS PROGRAM IS ON HIATUS UNTIL FALL 2016. PLEASE CHECK BACK THEN!
JUMP sessions are designed to cultivate creative research and offer opportunities for participants to receive personal feedback regarding path and form. The mentorship program includes 2 one on one studio sessions, 1 public performance of the work, stipend for studio rental time and weekly check-ins with one of two artistic mentors. At the conclusion of each mentoring period, mentees will be required to deliver a written/video thesis which will be published by NMC as a part of an online archive on the process of dance. Chosen artists and dancers will receive free admission to NMC hosted JUMP talks and showings by peers of works in progress. Peer showings will include facilitated critical feedback and support.
JUMP talks, hosted in collaboration with RIFF/The School of Contemporary Dance and Thought, are an opportunity to see new dance work by recognized artists in the field and an opportunity for artists and the community to be in discussion about the process of dance and art making.
