Choreonite Vol.8

Choreography Nite is an annual event by Gigi Art of Dance that was created in order to promote choreography making spirit within Gigi Art of Dance students, allowing students a special opportunity to create and express their concepts through dance, programmed through mentorship and training to ensure growth for their choreographic skills. As the program grew, Choreonite attracted more attention and interest and in 2018 was held for the first time to public participants.

Choreonite has been designed as a platform for learning first and foremost, focusing on allowing participants of any level to experience, experiment, and express through choreography. A lot of previous participants join Choreonite for their first time choreographing and the program is designed to be accessible at any age or level of training. 

By joining Choreonite, participants will be given tools and techniques in creating choreography that is usually reserved in syllabi of higher educational settings through a casual and safe approach, given by a highly qualified mentor.  Thus, Choreonite encourages more experimental and innovative approaches and creation while consistently applying the high standards required of a dance competition. 

Choreonite Vol. 8 is specifically designed to involve the idea of environmental consciousness into the participant’s conceptual process, through the theme of UPCYCLING. Upcycling is the idea of elevating the value of a used or unwanted idea or object into new materials or products of better quality and environmental value. This general starting idea of utilizing previous material that has been used before and creating something better from it will be the base of all choreographies in the competition. This will help promote environmental awareness through a level of engagement only found in Choreonite Vol. 8. 

The competition will be separated into two categories, Solo and Group. The Solo category will be separated into Kids (6-12 y.o.) and Adult (13 and above) and limited to Gigi Art of Dance students, while the Group category will be open for public with no age restrictions. Participants for the Solo category will also receive 1 session of mentoring, while participants in the Group category will receive 4 sessions of mentoring, to ensure that the choreography can be developed into its best form!
