Call to Artists
2017 Call to Artist
Your Dance Fest will be taking place at the Oakwood Library Auditorium from August 25th-27th, 2017. We are interested in work from all performance backgrounds and dance styles, as long as movement is the primary form of expression. We are interested in works which are engaging and accessible to audiences unfamiliar with dance but also challenging and boundary pushing both physically and thematically.

Chosen artists will perform twice throughout the weekend and will also be asked to attend post-show interactions with the audiences. Artists will receive an honorarium, a video of each performance, full technical staff and marketing as well as a fantastic opportunity to show your work and meet fellow artists and audiences. All applicants, whether selected or not, will receive written feedback from our non-dancer curatorial team.

This opportunity is available to artists who, at minimum, have completed a professional training program or equivalent. Proposed works must be between 10 and 20 minutes in length. Excerpts will not be permitted. Artists must be fully available from August 23rd to 27th, 2017 for technical rehearsals and performances.

Interested artists are asked to submit their application online by January 1st, 2017. Paper applications will not be accepted.
