NACHMO Boston (National Choreography Month)

NACHMO (National Choreography Month) is your yearly kick in the pants to create new work! NACHMO Boston is co-hosted by Alive Dance Collective and Monkeyhouse and strives to grow connections in our dance communities and offer both budding and established choreographers a chance to create and present. Participants take on the challenge of creating a new work during January (National Choreography Month), supported by choreographic prompts, mentoring sessions, and connections to the dance community. Works can be presented during mentoring sessions, informal showings, and formal performances. Whether you create fully fleshed out pieces or simple movement sketches, NACHMO wants to help you start off your year with some dance.
