are currently accepting applications for the Boutique Roster this year!
Make sure to apply on/before May 21, 2014 to be considered!
Boutique Roster consists of self-representing and enthusiastically
ready-to-book dance companies from New York City and across the
country. JK&A represents these highly accomplished dance artists at
conferences and they then book directly with theater presenters. This
is an opportunity to increase company exposure to potential presenters
worldwide. Great news is that several Boutique Roster companies booked
performances as a direct result of their affiliation with JK&A. And
several JK&A artists were booked “on the spot” at the APAP
conferences with artists getting tours to Korea, a month-long tour to
Italy, and several new USA bookings with Jacob’s Pillow, the Joyce
Theater and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (regular attendees at
JK&A’s showcases), among others.
The Boutique Roster encourages and supports its artists to network with
each other and theaters worldwide.
