Call For Choreographers

Alberta Dance Theatre is looking for passionate and creative professional and emerging choreographers who are interested in collaborating with the Alberta Dance Theatre Youth Artists to create work for our 2023 production.

Each production is based off of a piece of children’s literature. Choreographers will be tasked with facilitating ideas from the Youth Artists to interpret through movement, text and imagery a moment from the novel. Each piece is between three to four minutes, does not have to be genre specific, and is created over the course of 10 – 12 weeks on Sundays in the fall. The main goal of the choreographer is to introduce improvisation, creation, and composition skills to the Youth Artists to help facilitate their own journey through the arts.


Applicants Notified: May 2023Season Prep & Meetings: June – August 2023Meet n’ Greet with Youth Artists & Families: August 27, 2023First Rehearsal: September 10, 2023Saturday Rehearsals: November 4 – 25, 2023Show Week: November 26 – December 2, 2023

ADT rehearsals generally run Sundays 10:30am – 4pm with limited additional Saturday rehearsals 4 – 6pm in November. There are no rehearsals over the Thanksgiving weekend and one weekend in October while the Youth Artists are at their sleep-away Weekend Intensive. It is optional for choreographers to attend dress rehearsals and the show, though we hope you do! Alberta Dance Theatre prizes community highly!

This is a paid opportunity on a sliding scale based off of past choreographic experience.
