Young Choreographers Project is looking for established choreographers who are passionate about their craft to serve as Mentors for our upcoming 2016 program. Mentors have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a young dancer as they create an original dance piece. Connect with your community, make an impact in the life of a young dancer, and develop your leadership skills.
We have 2 special opportunities available for dance professionals and established choreographers currently living in the Los Angeles area.
Become a Program Mentor
Young Choreographers Project is looking for mentors for our 8-week program next spring! Mentors will have the opportunity to share their knowledge of dance and the choreographic process with a young student on their journey of creating their own dance. Mentors will facilitate the choreographers finding their voice and aiding them in their chance to make a statement. YCP provides the information and environment necessary to create a beginning for an aspiring choreographer and creates a relationship between mentor and young choreographer that should last beyond the program.
Program Dates: February 7th – April 10th (1 day/week). Click link below to apply.
Become a Guest Mentor
We know that a professional dancer’s schedule can be somewhat unpredictable. This is the perfect opportunity for dance professionals who are unable to commit to the full 8-week program. Visit our program for up to 2 sessions and provide guidance and feedback to our students and collaborate with other choreographers and professionals.
