NACHMO FAQ's

Does it cost anything to participate in NACHMO?

Nope. It doesn't cost anything to register, receive our newsletter, and join in the dance-making fun. If you want to show your work, most cities have a small performance fee to cover the cost of renting a venue. For example, in NYC it costs $10 to perform your piece in the studio shows.

How can I find dancers to perform in my piece?

While NACHMO does not pair dancers and choreographer, our partner festival, NACHMOx does. You can kick off your month of dance-making by participating in the January series of NACHMOx at the Tank. You can apply either as a choreographer or a dancer. Contact info@nachmo.org for more information about NACHMOx.

My city has never hosted a NACHMO show before - how can I start one in my city?

Check out our Guide for New NACHMO Shows - it's a first hand account of producing a first-time NACHMO show. Also, please be in touch! You can email info@nachmo.org with any questions or concerns you may have.

I already know I want to perform my piece. Where do I sign up for the shows?

First, register for NACHMO. Next, if you're in a city with NACHMO shows, we'll let you know in December where to sign up. If you're in a city that doesn't yet have shows, check out our production starter kit, and let us know if you'd like to host a NACHMO showing. We're happy to help!

What is the deadline for registering to participate in NACHMO 2017?

Registration is open now through January 5th. We hope you join us!

What is NACHMOx?

NACHMOx is your condensed choreographic kick in the pants that happens three times a year. The rules are simple: you can submit as a company, you can submit as a choreographer, or you can submit as a dancer. Choreographers and dancers will be paired together and then you have one week to create a brand new dance piece to be performed at The Tank. Companies will take an oath of originality!

Each NACHMOx series will focus on a different interdisciplinary theme as a jumping off point for a brand new dance piece. For more information about NACHMOx, email info@nachmo.org.
