Dance Creation 2014 Showcase was held at the Coopers Malthouse Theatre in Melbourne on Tuesday 28th October 2014.  It was a wonderful success this year giving choreographic talent a platform to showcase their work to a packed audience, dance company directors and representatives. There were eight pieces selected from the State preliminaries which were held earlier in the year. As a reward for their efforts, we are hoping that they will have the opportunity to work with a major dance company.

The Showcase Choreographers were:

  • Paulina Qinteros
  • Elise May
  • Jesse Martin
  • Lina Limosani
  • Daniel Jaber
  • Rochelle Carmichael
  • Isaac Campbell
  • Stephen Agisilaou

We look forward to watching as the careers of these choreographers unfold into the future.
