Anything But Traditional: Unique Center Champions Choreography Research

Scientists aren’t the only ones who conduct experiments as a part of their research at Florida State University. Artists are constantly experimenting, too — their research is commonly known as the creative process.

FSU’s Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) has championed research and experimentation by artists for the past decade.

MANCC regularly invites regionally and nationally acclaimed choreographers and dancemakers to develop new contemporary dance works as a part of the center’s multiple residency programs. The center creates a haven for artists where the creative process is both nurtured and propelled forward.
