NACHMO - National Choreography Month - is your yearly choreographic kick in the pants. Conceived by Sharyn Korey and Anna Brown Massey, NACHMO spurs dancers to choreograph by challenging them to work against a deadline.
For one month each year, we put aside our excuses, our hesitations, and perhaps our day jobs to work intensely on making dance. Through the communal blog, social media, and live events throughout January, we provide opportunities for individual artists to network and collaborate.
Monica Hogan Danceworks will be participating in New York's National Choreography Month throughout all of January. Stay tuned for information on where you can catch us performing the resulting work!
Monica Hogan Danceworks has been selected to choreograph and perform a new work for the MaD Circle Dance Concert on August 10th!

About Mad Circle
Can you take something old — something mired in tradition and expectations — and make it new? Can forms calcified through glacial evolution be revolutionized? These are the driving impulses behind MaD (Music and Dance) Circle, a collaboration between Composer's Voice and curators Callie Hatchett and Erin Bomboy. MaD Circle seeks to take the outmoded forms of Tango and Waltz, associated with the mores of the ballroom and rooted in sexist implications, and revitalize them for a new generation through fresh choreographic ideas and rejuvenated music structures.
MaD Circle selected choreographers, both established and emerging, to be randomly assigned a new piece of music curated from a selection of compositions especially composed for this project from working composers.
