Keshet Makers Space Experience

The Keshet Makers Space Experience (MSE) is a cohort-based residency program in which choreographers / dancemakers have access to rehearsal space, peer movement classes, arts business workshops, and the New Mexico skies, as they explore their art form and their projects at whatever stage they might be – newly germinating ideas, final development of full productions, and/or anything in between.

Each MSE Cohort provides a unique opportunity for artists from across the country and world to gather at Keshet for a 10-day residency as they explore, move, share, and create. It is also a unique opportunity for the Albuquerque community to enjoy getting to know these amazing artists.
