Apply: Ballet Co.Laboratory’s 2025 Emerging Choreographer - May 10

Are you a Minnesota-based emerging choreographer with formal ballet training? Apply for our Laboratory II: Emerging Choreographer Program for a paid opportunity to create a new, full-length, staged production performed by the upper-level students at The School of Ballet Co.Laboratory in March 2025!

The story that Ballet Co.Laboratory will be asking the 2025 emerging choreographer to draw inspiration from is the children’s book Harold and the Purple Crayon – inspired by Harold going to the State Fair. Applicants who apply can choose to present this narrative as a classical or contemporary ballet. The selected choreographer will work alongside the Ballet Co.Laboratory artistic team in selecting the music, designing scenic elements, creating costumes, and casting roles.

Choreographers applying to this program are encouraged to think critically about how ballet can continue to evolve in becoming more inclusive and forward-thinking. Artists are asked to create a production with a story line that sparks the imagination and challenges the audiences’ perception of what ballet is.

All applicants must live in Minnesota, have had formal ballet training, and consider themselves to be an emerging choreographer.

Applications close on May 10, 2024.
