We exist simply to provide freedom and opportunity in the creative process. Our goal is to create opportunities to meet up and collaborate with other artists, choreographers, and dance professionals by providing a group of bodies to set work on. Choreographers will also have the opportunity to show their work in small to large functions.
A big part of this vision is choreography and compositional education by exposing all collaborators to different processes by which a piece is composed, not only for the choreographers but the dancers and other artists involved. Though not required, feel free to bring your own dancers and students so that they may become familiar with the incredibly elaborate and involved process of making dances. Exposure to other choreographers, teachers, & artists fosters a more holistic education for the dancer.
While we all have our own local hub where we work and play, CFCC aims to remain flexible in different spaces throughout the Central Florida area frequenting places such as Orlando, Tampa, Ocala, the Villages, Gainesville, and beyond. If you are interested in hosting in your area or have a project you would like to bring forth, please contact us. If you are interested in becoming a Project Choreographer for our 2020/21 season please read our FAQ's and then submit and inquiry here.
Greetings my fellow Artists,
I am so happy that you have shown an interest in our organization and I hope that you will make contact with us at an upcoming meet up, class, or event. I would love to meet you in person and chat with you about your personal focus in the arts. The scope of the art world continues to evolve as the landscape of our society continues to change. Now more than ever I believe it is necessary to create the things that the world is lacking. Galatians 5:22-23 says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self control.” I firmly believe that God is calling artists to create and operate in these fruits.
I feel it is necessary to share this with you because I am a Christian and while this organization is open to work with any and all people groups, you should be aware that it is governed by Christian principals based on a biblical worldview. Biblical meaning I believe the Bible to be the perfect Word of God, infallible, inerrant, and not subject to man’s interpretation. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and therefore I have a set of values that will determine how I lead and make decisions for this organization. So what does this mean for CFCC?
We are a neutral organization meaning anyone is welcome to participate with us regardless of political, religious, ideological, and/or personal beliefs. ANYONE! Our organization strives to remain neutral and a family friendly environment. Many arts organizations have taken it upon themselves to become activists for social change and while I applaud many of their efforts and passions, we are not one of those organizations. Our activism will come in the form of good character and loving people. That being said, I want everyone, no matter his or her beliefs, to feel welcome and open to create with us. If a collaborator becomes combative, a source of strife, drama, or hatred, a course of action will be determined by leadership.
It is my goal to create in a peaceful environment that will nurture all involved so please know that every decision made is done so to accomplish just that. We all love our craft and for most, if not all of us, it has been a source of encouragement, safety, and edification. I hope that this community can also be a place to foster relationships that uplift you and help you along in your personal journey. If you would like prayer or even just to have a conversation please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I hope to see you very soon.
