KARAR DANCE COMPANY believes in choreographers and their ability to enhance the community in which they live. They work hard to shape and mold dances that provide cultural enrichment and offer a home and network for artists of multiple disciplines which is crucial to the artistic growth of all creators involved. This value has led to the development of Homegrown Choreographers where KARAR DANCE COMPANY encourages and uplifts the development of dance artists at various stages in their career.

Homegrown Choreographers hosts HOMEGROWN, a virtual dance festival to support US-based dance artists who’ve experienced cancelled performances due to COVID-19.
Homegrown will share artist work on Instagram (@homegrown.choreographers).  High School and Collegiate work will be accepted in addition to work of professionals!
