How many EMDOD Commissioned Creations can I participate in?

We are asking that participants take part in no more than two new creations unless expressed from Founder/Artistic Director Fredrick Earl Mosley.

I can't attend all of my rehearsals/performances. Am I still able to participate?

We want to be mindful of everyone's various availabilities and are open to this, yes! It may not be possible but this must be OK'd by the choreographer and the EMDOD team. We must know in advance how many rehearsals/performances you can't attend. Please email dancingbeyond.emdod@gmail.com​ to communicate this.

Can I get a copy of the created work that I participated in?

Yes! Downloadable links for any work will be available, after the performances, in the EMDOD SHOP.

How do I pay my participation fee?

You can visit our SUPPORT page to share your participation fee through PayPal, Venmo, and/or credit/debit card.

I am on the waitlist for an EMDOD Commissioned work, when will I know if I will be able to join the process?

In order to support accessibility for all participants, this waitlist process may continue until the first or second rehearsal of each respective process. We will contact those on the rep waitlist immediately once we know there is space in a work. Please email dancingbeyond.emdod@gmail.com​​ for further questions on this.

When will performance tickets be available to purchase?

We will have them available as soon as possible for purchase at the EMDOD SHOP. Please stay tuned and we will definitely be sharing the news of these released tickets! Please note that all tickets will be held at the Manhattan Movement Arts Center box office.

What are the COVID-19 health guidelines for Dancing Beyond?

Currently, we are adhering to each rehearsal studio and Manhattan Movement Arts Theater's respective COVID-19 policies. These will be communicated. EMDOD is requesting that all participants be COVID-19 vaccinated. For performances, performers can be mask-less and audiences will be required to wear a mask. All guidelines are in partnership with CDC and WHO guidelines. EMDOD, and any of it's partners, reserves the right to update these guidelines and mandates if deemed necessary for safety.
