Makers Space Experience – A Choreographic Center

_MG_1317RT

Dancers/Choreographers! Do you need SPACE to work on your ideas? 

Keshet Makers Space offers choreographers space to develop their craft, at whatever stage that might be…newly germinating ideas and/or final development of full productions. The Keshet Center for the Arts currently has 4 studios and a 220-seat black box theater in which visiting artists can use the space for in exchange for providing a few master classes during their time at Keshet. These classes are open to the community, and when Makers are visiting during a designated cohort period, they are also intended for Makers Space participants to take classes from each other and learn from and about one others work. The upcoming Makers Space Experience cohort period will run February 5 – March 12, 2017.

  • Interested dancers/choreographers should contact Keshet for a brief interview/discussion about space needs and project exploration.
  • Local friends, keep your eyes peeled for amazing master classes open to the public by these diverse visiting artists!

The Keshet Makers Space Experience does not cover travel/housing costs, but we provide free access to space, free classes during your visit, lots of sunshine and oodles of love. So if you or someone you know might benefit from this type of space and experience and would like to come hang in New Mexico, contact Shira@KeshetArts.org to start the process of joining us for the next Keshet Makers Space Experience.
