Converge Dance Festival 2019

Choreographer Application   -- CLOSED --

Converge Dance Festival is looking for proposals of original contemporary dance works (10-12min in length) to present at its 2019 festival


Festival Dates May 17 & 18, 2019

Tech/dress rehearsal May 16, time TBD

Dancer Audition January 12, 2-5pm


Converge Dance Festival seeks to select 5-7 artists to present work in the 2019 festival. How many new and how many mid-career artists are to be selected is up to the curators once they have received all submissions, though we strive to select a balanced percentage of new and kown voices, as well as sculpting a high quality, engaging, entertaining, and thought-provoking show.  


We encourage choreographers to think outside the box and feel comfortable to explore ideas. We encourage choreographers from new to mid-career (max. of 5 years creating their own work in Seattle) and of all genres (with a focus on the work proposed being contemporary in nature,) as well as all genders and races to apply. 


Artists will be selected and announced via direct email by November 18. 


Please, make sure to only submit a complete application with all links working and providing correct passwords if applicable. If you would like to add additional pages, please do so by adding a word or pdf document and send all materials in one file.  Late or incomplete submissions CAN NOT be accepted.


At Converge Dance Festival we emphasize community and encourage selected artists to work with dancers, who attend the festival’s dancer audition. If you would like particular dancers to be part of your work, please make sure they are able to attend the dancer audition in January. 


Please, make sure to double-check mentioned dates and let us know if you will not be available at any of the dates or for an extended period between January and May 2019. We would like to have all selected choreographers be part of the dancer audition in January.


Converge Dance Festival is open to choreographers of the wider Seattle area.
