Choreographers Evening happens every year over the Thanksgiving weekend at the Walker Art Center. The thriving dance community here in the Twin Cities goes all out on this special night. Go behind the scenes as dancers audition for a chance to be in this year’s event. This 38th year of Choreographer’s Evening is curated by Susana di Palma of Zorongo Flamenco, who had the difficult task of choosing all thirteen acts out of the nearly 50 auditions.

Susana reflects back on the first ever choreographers evening in 1971 and explains why this community of dance is so vibrant!
