Guest Performance Residency


With the goal to produce exceptional dance for western montana, BBD created Guest performance residencies (GPR).

While Missoula can brag of many wonderful qualities, as artists and audiences we can be rather isolated. GPRs provide a much needed view into the world of contemporary dance out side of Western Montana. Residencies last from 1-2 weeks and combine performance, teaching, and direct artistic dialogue with our audiences. These residencies augment our already robust local performance offerings.


Our next Call for Submissions for our upcoming GPR will take place in the late fall. If you are a choreographer/artist who would like to be put on our list for more GPR info, please email us at
