Open Showings

Starting January 12, 2018, Halestone began to host open showings for work-in-progress dance and choreography. These showings are free and open to the public with a $5 suggested donation for audience members and participants. Each showing is followed by a conversation between participants and audience members, moderated by Halestone staff.

Anyone, even those not currently involved with Halestone, is welcome to show work at any stage of creation. Our intention is for this to be an opportunity for those developing work to receive feedback from a wide demographic in an informal setting on work that is still in development. We hope that the discussion sessions serve both audience members and artists as an opportunity to practice verbalizing around the art of dance as a community.

If you are interested in showing your work (dance, theatre, music, performance, etc) at an Open Showing, or want more information about how to attend an Open Showing, contact Mauri Connors at
