Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab Performance 2010
Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab Performance 2010

The Choreographic Laboratory in previous years was held in conjunction with the Pacific Dance Fono.

2011 was the first year the Choreographic Lab was held as a separate event which saw a number of Pacific dance choreographers develop works over an intensive three week period. These selected choreographers benefit from the mentoring of an experienced choreographer/director who helps them through the stages of taking a dance work from conceptualisation to actuality (and into a theatre setting).

2013 was the fifth year of the Choreo Lab and this was celebrated with the show 'Moana, a Pacific Dance Showcase' which ran for a week season at TAPAC as part of the 'Pacific As' month of March.
