Choreographers are selected by audition and two awards will be given. The sjDANCEco Award (selected by the Artistic Directors based on choreographic strength) and the Audience Choice Award (chosen by the audience via ballot vote). Awardees are invited to perform during the professional hour of the sjDANCEco Festival at Santana Row in April.

Interested Choreographer?

sjDANCEco's ChoreoProject Award's Concert is a low-tech dance series for all dance disciplines (modern, ballet, hip hop, jazz, ethnic dance, etc.) designed to provide emerging and professional choreographers a cost free opportunity to present their work.

The ChoreoProject series has been in existence since 2005 and became a bi-annual event in 2012.
