AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE’S

ABT INCUBATOR

RETURNS FOR SECOND ANNUAL WORKSHOP,
OCTOBER 29–NOVEMBER 9, 2019
TWO-WEEK CHOREOGRAPHIC PROGRAM OPEN TO
ABT DANCERS AND FREELANCE CHOREOGRAPHERS
Audition for Freelance Choreographers to be Held August 8
American Ballet Theatre continues its in-house choreographic program this
Fall with ABT Incubator. It was announced today by Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie.
ABT Incubator, a two-week choreographic workshop, provides new and
seasoned choreographers with a focused lab to inspire and generate ideas for the creation
of new work. Directed by American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer David Hallberg,
ABT Incubator will be held October 29–November 9, 2019 at ABT’s New York studios
and is open to ABT dancers and freelance choreographers. Participating choreographers
will be chosen through an audition process with selections made by a panel of
choreographers, directors and artists in ballet and dance, including Hallberg, McKenzie,
Danspace Executive Director Judy Hussie-Taylor and choreographer Jessica Lang. The
audition will be held Thursday, August 8 at ABT’s 890 Broadway studios.

Choreographers chosen for the two-week program will be provided studio
space, a stipend, collaborators, panel discussions and mentorships to create new work on
dancers from ABT, culminating with a private studio showing on November 9.
“Following the success of the first iteration of ABT Incubator in 2018, I have
recognized the immense value of our choreographic workshop and am thrilled to host this
essential program for ABT for its second season,” said Hallberg. “I remain as committed
as ever to providing new voices in choreography with the resources to focus on process
and create freely.”

“American Ballet Theatre is committed to establishing an environment
conducive for creating new work,” said McKenzie. “ABT Incubator is the next step for
our institution to support that commitment.”

Choreographers of all ages, ethnic and racial backgrounds and gender
identifications are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in
the United States to be considered. Audition information and guidelines for freelance
choreographers are available by visiting: www.abt.org/abtincubator.

ABT Incubator is supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
