What is NACHMO?

NACHMO is an annual challenge that spurs dancers, choreographers, and movement enthusiasts to choreograph by providing a month-long deadline and a community of peers. We offer opportunities for participants to share their new work with each other and with the public in both informal and fully produced shows.

For one month each year, we put aside our excuses, our hesitations, and perhaps our day jobs to work intensely on making dance. Through the online community of fellow NACHMO participants, social media, the blog, and live events, we provide opportunities for individual artists to network and collaborate. Inspired by National Novel Writing Month, we are your choreographic kick in the pants!
