MAKING:LA is now a rolling residency program that supports Los Angeles based artists and professional companies in the development of new work. LADP offers a tailored experience for each residency through rehearsal space, production/technical support, mentorship, and exchange. MAKING:LA is intended to be a laboratory for investigation - culminating presentations are encouraged, however, this program does not support fully produced works. Projects are chosen based on feasibility, availability of space, artistic merit and alignment with LADP’s mission to build a vibrant and innovative artistic culture in Los Angeles. Artists and companies of all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Proposals for MAKING:LA are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by our artistic staff.

Only complete proposals will be reviewed.

Designed for early career choreographers, this annual program supports three projects in their initial stages of development. The focus is on providing participants with an intensive week to dive into a generative process and formulate their impulses. Individuals, companies, and collaboratives are encouraged to submit applications for multidisciplinary projects that combine dance with technology, visual art, installation, music, or other mediums. Projects should not be previously performed or presented and not require additional technical support.

Selected artists receive one week of rehearsal at L.A. Dance Project: 2245. The facility includes a sound system, sprung floor, central AC system, private changing rooms, and parking. The week will culminate with an informal public presentation and conversation with the artist, supported and promoted by L.A. Dance Project.


The application period closed on April 5, 2019 at 12:00 pm PST.
