Now Accepting Mentor Submissions

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.

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.
