Newburgh Illuminated Festival 2019 - Ritz Dance Stage Performance Application
Complete the form below to apply to perform on the Ritz Dance Stage at Newburgh Illuminated Festival on June 1, 2019. Deadline to apply: March 1
Notification on or before April 1

The Ritz Performing Arts Stage presents dance at Newburgh Illuminated Festival, a highly-attended community event held on the first weekend of June in Newburgh, NY each year. The Ritz Dance Stage is located in the park at Safe Harbors Green next to the Ritz Theater at 111 Broadway in Newburgh, NY. The stage dimensions are approximately 25' x 30' and include a canopy and a marley dance floor.

This is an outdoor event, therefore there is no theatrical lighting or projection capability.

Newburgh Illuminated Festival is accepting dance performances between 8 and 20 minutes long. Submitted work must be primarily a dance work or have a prominent dance component. The stage is programmed between 12:00 noon until 6:00 p.m. and there is no set-up time, no break down time, and no rehearsal time available. Newburgh Illuminated Festival is a family event, therefore all acts MUST be appropriate for audiences of all ages.

This event is intended for professional groups, but high-level student work will also be considered. Dance studios or student groups interested in performing on the stage should choose their best, most senior ensemble work for this application. Applicants unfamiliar with the festival performance structure can contact the planning committee at NIFRitzStage@gmail.com for assistance.

Applicants must provide a video of the work that they propose to perform on the NIF Ritz Stage. Rehearsal or studio footage is fine. Montage, trailers, or a website link with multiple videos of your repertoire cannot be adjudicated. Applications without video cannot be considered for the stage under any circumstances. Please upload a video of the work you would like to perform to YouTube or Vimeo and include the link in your application.

A panel of dance professionals adjudicate the submissions and choose the works most appropriate for the audience and venue.

Thank you for your interest in Newburgh Illuminated Festival Ritz Dance Stage. Your contribution to the arts and growing this vibrant festival and community are invaluable.
