Choreographers for the Fall 2016 New York Choreographic Institute: D Level School of American Ballet Student Gianna Reisen, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Price Suddarth and Miami City Ballet’s Eric Trope.
So proud of Gianna, Price, and Eric for being selected as the choreographers for the Fall 2016 New York Choreographic Institute. The Choreographic Institute offers a truly golden opportunity for these three aspiring choreographers, giving them the chance to have their pieces recognized by the broader ballet community, with past Choreographic Institute pieces being developed into full ballets for companies such as New York City Ballet. Given full access to dancers, and costumers, and free reign over lighting and music, these young dancers will choreograph short pieces for the institute: a nerve racking task considering the pieces are set to be performed in front of highly respected board members, and influential members of the ballet community such as Peter Martins. Best of luck to the 2016 choreographers!
