This lab seeks to provide an opportunity for local dance company advancement and artistic development through meaningful contact with national choreographers, to raise the profile of dance in the region and to highlight local talent. We welcome Kansas applicants from all backgrounds and dance disciplines. A small travel stipend may be available for accepted applicants from outside the Johnson County area.

New Dance Partners is an initiative launched in 2013 by the Performing Arts Series/Carlsen Center at Johnson County Community College to develop a dance awareness strategy for the region. The program was expanded in 2014 through a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission and returns this year as a partnership between KCAIC and JCCC.

Through New Dance Partners, a select group of local professional dance companies are paired with reputable choreographers from across the county to create new works. The program provides an opportunity for local dance companies to advance and sustain artistic development while building the local dance audience through a community-based festival in Kansas that celebrates the broad spectrum of dance in the area.

New Dance Partners will culminate with performances of the above pieces Sept. 27 – 28 at Yardley Hall on the JCCC campus.
