Happy Friday ya'll! Did anyone else's week go UBERslow? Oh well, I'm just glad to see everyone wearing jeans and ready for the weekend...someone even brought donuts!

Anyway, the fall dance season is upon us (don't forget about HSDC this weekend!), and I can't wait. Aside from all the great fall performances, the Joffrey Ballet is calling for choreographers for their new "Creative Force" initiative. They're looking for applications for The Joffrey's Choreographers of Color Award. They're hoping to find two choreographers of color to set their work on Joffrey trainees. On top of a $2500 cash award, the winners will get to work closely with Joffrey's Artistic Director Ashley C. Wheater as well as the Academy Artistic Directors.

Apps are due November 1, so get 'em in! More info and applications found here.
