Colette Brandenburg, Building a Sustainable Career in Commercial Dance (Lecture)

Colette Brandenburg is the co-founder and artistic director of the LA Follies, and also the founder of UK-based The Federation. Trained in the Alvin Ailey School dance conservatory program in New York, she became a freelance choreographer, and has had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings — ranging from traditional musical formats to site-specific avant-garde events on rooftops in London — and with clients such as NBCUniversal and the Hallmark Channel. Brandenburg will talk about the nitty gritty of the dance world, from first impressions before the audition to getting paid to perform.
