RDT presents CHARETTE 2014 - 2/22/14 from RDT on Vimeo.

RDT's Charette is....
fearless choreographers
RDT dancers
community dancers
esteemed celebrity judges
audience members eating, drinking, and bribing with RDT funny money
friendly competition to crown the Iron Choreographer for 2014!

How Charette Works

  1. Audience goes immediately to the theatre for introductions to 5 pre-selected choreographers and for the rehearsed performance.
  2. Five choreographers are given "secret ingredients" that they must use in each composition.
  3. RDT's 9 professional dancers and 30 gifted community dancers are divided between the choreographers and are sent to one of the 5 studios to create their work.
  4. Charette guests (the audience) eat, drink, and merrily wander between the party and the studios where dance is being created. Guests are invited to "bribe" the judges to vote for their favorite choreographer with RDT Funny Money.
  5. Guests are invited to enter various Opportunity Drawings throughout the space.
  6. After an hour everyone returns to the theatre to see the newly created dances, vote for their favorite, and see who wins the title of RDT's "Iron Choreographer" for 2014!
