AWAKENING will premier in NYC at The Ailey CitiGroup Theatre on August 6th & 7th 2014! Choreographed by Lindsay Nelko, the 2013 CAPEZIO A.C.E AWARDS 2nd Runner Up Winner. 

A World Premiere Evening of Dance in New York City!

NOTE FROM LINDSAY :) 

For as long as I can remember it has been a dream of mine to present an evening of my own work. My choreography is a fusion of ballet, modern and jazz techniques that is unique, diverse and theatrical. To help this dream become a reality I submitted my choreography to the 2013 CAPEZIO A.C.E AWARDS (Award of Choreographic Excellence) and was thrilled to have been selected as a finalist from over 500 applicants. As one of 16 finalists who were chosen to present a piece of their work in New York City, I received the 2ND RUNNER UP AWARD! The award, sponsored by CAPEZIO and BREAK THE FLOOR PRODUCTIONS, provides partial funding for me to mount my first full length dance show AWAKENING. Three performances of the show will be presented at The Alvin Ailey American Dance Citigroup Theatre August 6th & 7th 2014! http://www.danceteachersummit.com/aceawards

ABOUT AWAKENING 

AWAKENING is a show created about the DREAM state. Dreams do inspire us and I believe that dreams can transform us. The blurred state between wakefulness and sleep is so fascinating. Hypnagogia is a well described neurological phenomenon that can occur when one is waking up. They are in essence dream experiences that are occurring while you are awake. Whether your dreams are filled with love, sadness, joy or anxiety they can leave a lasting impression on us. I want to take you on a journey that is real, and raw. 

ABOUT FUNDING 

The funding from CAPEZIO and BREAK THE FLOOR PRODUCTIONS, while generous is only partial. The entire cost for the premier of AWAKENING in NYC will be closer to $50,000. You can be a part in helping to launch this exciting dance performance by supporting in any way you can. Whatever you give is most appreciated! 

Funds will go towards, lighting design, costume design, set design, sound design, costumes, props, and most importantly dancers salaries as I hope to bring my creation to life with an exceptional team of artists!

THANK YOU :)

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to consider supporting my show! If you are a lover of dance and would like to be part of something truly special, please help me bring AWAKENING to life!

Risks and challenges

I now look forward to the challenge and adventure of creating an evening of my own work! The hope would be to present my work in Winnipeg in the near future. Representing Winnipeg, Canada and being the only Canadian ever awarded this honor truly puts Winnipeg on the map. I am so proud to be Canadian and from Winnipeg in particular where our arts community has had such a long tradition of excellence. As an emissary for our dance community I promise to do us proud.

This opportunity requires great discipline, passion and creativity. This is something I have been dreaming about for over a decade, and I am honored to have an opportunity to create and showcase my work on this level.
