​​​​​​​​​​blank | SLATE, presented by iMEE, is a movement lab for emerging and professional choreographers looking to accelerate their craft in an unrestricited environment.

At no cost to the selected choreographer, artist will be provided four hours of studio space in Houston, TX. A different choreographer, 20yrs & older, will be selected each month and each choreographer is required to promote and assist with filling their session with participants. Participating dancers, 17yrs & older, pay a nominal $ 20 workshop fee to work with the selected choreographer during their four hour session, 1-5PM. blank | SLATE offers the choreographer an opportunity to work on their craft uninhibitedly in a stress free environment. 

The fine print... choreographers will not receive monies for their scheduled session, just the gift of space & time. Again, choreographers must be at least 20 yrs of age, reside in the greater Houston area at time of session & have transportation. All submissions are adjudicated by iMEE Co-Founding Directors. blank | SLATE is held in the light filled space of the Walsh Studio at Vitacca Vocational School for Dance, located in Houston, TX (2311 Dunlavy, 77006.) Sessions run 1-5PM. Dancers interested in participating in a specific session will be able to reserve their position one month prior to each session. Reservations are required, limited space is available. The $ 20 workshop fee must be paid in FULL prior to the onset of each session. Cash payments only.  All blank | SLATE proceeds go directly to iMEE programming. Studio space is kindly donated by Vitacca Vocational School for Dance.
