Top Ten Finalists for 2018 Eryc Taylor Dance New Choreographer Grant (ETD/NCG) / by Nicole Baker

It is my pleasure to announce the TOP TEN FINALISTS for the 2018 New Choreographer Grant:

Alison Machabee
Susanne McHugh
Charlotte Colemant
Jordan Ryder
Melanie Ramos
Kanon Sapp
Andrea Ward
Rosie D'angelo
Chris Bell
Mat Elder

We received an overwhelming amount of grant applications this year and want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that participated. The amount of talent and passion present in the grant proposals was refreshing and inspiring, but made choosing the top ten extremely difficult. While we wish every emerging choreographer could receive the ETD/NCG, we hope that if you did not get selected this year that you apply again next year. In the meantime, continue to hone in on your craft and make more dance!

Now that we have chosen the finalists, the next step in the selection process is an in-person interview with Eryc. He likes to put a name to face, get to know the applicants and discuss their ideas for the NCG in more detail.

This interviews begin this Friday and we cannot wait to meet all these incredible choreographers.
