Sandbox Series



The 2015 Sandbox Series artists have been selected! Congratulations to Jesselito Bie, Nicole Klaymoon, Jenny McAllister, and Erika Chong Shuch.

Get paid to experiment! Get paid to dance!

The Sandbox Series is designed to support artistic exploration. Choreographers will be chosen for 8 3-hour sessions over a period of one month purely for the purpose of creative exploration. This project is meant to support imagination and risk; it is not project based and is not intended to replace the traditional pre-production rehearsal process.

Each choreographer will choose up to 6 dancers (with whom they have not worked with before) in one large open audition. For participation in the project, choreographers will be paid $1000, and each dancer will be paid a weekly fee of $90/week. The 24 hours of rehearsal space is paid for by ODC. Choreographers must have 8-10 years of professional production experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.

Previous Sandbox choreographers have included Katie Faulkner, Amelia Rudolph, Kim Epifano, Jo Kreiter, Scott Wells, Erin Mei-Ling Stuart, and more!

Session 1: February 16 - March 11
Session 2: March 16 - April 8
Session3: April 13-May 6
