In 2018, a few dancers from Festival Ballet Providence, along with a generous donation from an anonymous donor, started the Rhode Island Women’s Choreography Project. The show gave eight women from around the state the chance to choreograph a dance work (some of them for the first time in their lives) in the context of a dance world that makes it difficult for female voices to be heard. The event raised almost $800 in proceeds for the Sojourner House of RI.After a great first year, we’re excited to announce the second annual WCP, and hope to expand upon what is hopefully the start of a tradition. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for women’s creative voices to develop, mature, and be heard. The event serves as a platform for aspiring female choreographers to experiment and present a new work to an audience.
is to provide an opportunity for women’s creative voices to develop, mature, and be heard through choreography. The choreography is presented in a public performance where available funds raised are donated to local non profit organizations thereby supporting the local community through the arts.
