Pulse Dance Company, in partnership with Studio Pulse Center for Dance, is now accepting applications for BLOOM, an artist in residence program designed to nurture, support, and provide professional development for emerging and mature contemporary dance makers ages 18+. 

With the capacity to fully support the specific needs of dance, BLOOM will provide time for reflection, space, and some monetary assistance to allow selected choreographers the opportunity to research, explore, create and present new choreographic works 5-10 minutes in length. 

BLOOM aims to promote the continued development of forward thinking dance in Anchorage by providing rehearsal space, costuming stipends, mentorship, and a fully marketed and produced BLOOM concert in April 2020.

The choreographer application period closes December 30, after which selected artist(s) will be announced and community auditions and rehearsal time slots will be set. 

To apply, please submit the following information to PulseDanceCompany@gmail.com before 5pm on 12/30/2019. Late applications will not be considered.

• Name and age

• Dance resume

• 1-3 links to videos of past choreographic works

• A brief summary of why you would like to be considered for BLOOM, including how you think being selected would contribute to your growth as an artist.

• The ideas you’re interested in exploring for your work, how many dancers you might like to collaborate with, and any other pertinent information regarding your artistic vision.

• Any other specific needs or assistance you would find beneficial if selected as a BLOOM artist in residence.

Please note that this residency values immersion of various dancers and dance communities. BLOOM exists to support the development of individual dance makers outside of any other dance affiliations. Interested performers must participate in the audition process to be cast. If selected, choreographers will assist in theatre load in and load out.

COMMUNITY AUDITIONS: Be cast in a new work by new choreographers! January 11, 3:00-4:30pm, Studio Pulse. $10 class/audition fee. Dancers must partake in auditions to be considered for BLOOM casting.
