Since 2015, the Choreographers Night has offered choreographers and dancers throughout Switzerland a non-judgmental platform. In November 2022 they will celebrate its 5th anniversary. This should be extensively celebrated and at the same time offer 16 other choreographers and their dancers the opportunity to present their art.
If we reach the first stage, we could pay for the basic needs such as rent, video- & photographer, as well as DJ & moderation.
With the second stage we could cover the meals for the choreographers and dancers as well as their expenses. A budget for the promotion of the event would also be available.
The third stage would allow us to offer the choreographers training rooms to rehearse their show. We could also give all participants a small goodie as a thank you.
If we could reach our Crowdify goal of CHF 20,000, it would cover our own expenses and give us a cushion for further projects (Choreographers Day, Choreographers Talk, International Choreographers Night).
The association Choreographers Night was founded by three friends. Alicia, Mike & Marcelo are professional dancers/choreographers and have been in the business for years. They have made it their goal to offer the small but very talented Swiss dance scene a platform and thus strengthen their position in society. Their vision is to increase the status of dancers and choreographers in Switzerland and thus to offer a hub for all dance-related matters.
At the age of 14 I discovered my love for dancing. This love has accompanied me through all aspects of my life ever since. Seven years ago, together with Alicia & Marcelo, I started the association Choreographers Night and organized an annual dance showcase. Now the 5th anniversary is just around the corner, which we want to celebrate extensively in order to be able to offer the choreographers and dancers an even bigger platform and range.
As the daughter of the owner of a dance school, the rhythm was put into my cradle, so to speak. During and after my biology studies, I continued to educate myself in various dance styles such as house, salsa, jazz funk and commercial at home and abroad. I danced with various groups and shows in Switzerland and stood on various stages such as the Swiss Music Awards or with Dj Bobo. Since I could never get used to the idea of competition, I founded the association Choreographers Night with Marcelo & Mike with the aim of creating a platform that enables Swiss choreographers and dancers to present their art in a non-judgmental environment.
Dancing has been a constant companion since I was a child. I have been working professionally as a dancer for 11 years now. I've always been bothered by the competitive spirit in the Swiss dance scene and that's why I wanted to create a non-judgmental platform for dancers and choreographers. Now the 5th anniversary is just around the corner, which should be a stepping stone for the participants as well as for us & our future.
