Tēnā koutou Aotearoa dance community,


Northern Dance Network with the support of Creative New Zealand is very pleased to introduce a new initiative called Tūrama. Tūrama is a 12-day choreographic intensive created to nurture and develop the craft of emerging choreographers in Aotearoa. The purpose of this programme is to help establish more sustainable careers for six emerging choreographers by giving them time, opportunity, support (including financial) and mentoring to develop their craft. Choreographers must not be currently studying, and have since completed study in the past 5 years. Emerging choreographers who have not studied in Tertiary but have been choreographing for the past 5 years are also eligible to apply.


This opportunity is open to emerging choreographers in Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland). Those from outside of Tāmaki Makurau may apply but must arrange and pay for their own transport and accommodation.

  • When - Tūrama Choreographic Intensive will be from Monday 12th - Saturday 17th to Monday 19th - 24th July 2021
  • Where - The Dance Studio, Morningside Drive, Tāmaki Makaurau
  • Fee - A stipend of $1,200


Please complete the form below by 7th May 2021. Applicants will be selected by a panel of artists in the Aotearoa dance industry and applicants will be contacted by 17th May 2021.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon.  If you have any questions, please email or ring Ufitia on 021 110 2460.
