Call for Choreographers:

The W.I.P. (works in progress) Series in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is looking for professional and emerging choreographers to present original and innovative works in progress in Saskatoon. Jackie Latendresse is the Series Coordinator. Informal showings will take place twice a year and the season culminates in a Gala event of finished works. The first showing of work will be on May 17th 2008 and the second batch of choreographers will be presented in September 2008. The Gala event is to be held in December 2008.
Priority will be given to Saskatchewan based artists however; national applications are encouraged. Please send:
