ELIGIBILITY & SELECTION PROCESS
Ohio-based professional and collegiate choreographers/performers are eligible to submit an application for The 2020 OhioDance Festival Performance. OhioDance selects a panel of dance professionals from outside of Ohio to adjudicate the submissions and select pieces to be performed through portfolio review. All applications will be adjudicated based on the documentation provided in the portfolio and the artistic quality of the work. The work must be 10 minutes or less, and the choreographer and dancers need to be 18 years of age or older by the time of performance. Only one cued piece will be accepted for adjudication. Choreographers will be notified of results on January 24, 2020 (NO panel comments). A monetary award of $500-$700 will be awarded to each choreographer, depending on grant dollars received.
Selected applicants will have their dances professionally produced, and will work with a marketing and public relations professional to promote their work through a variety of media outlets. A professional video will be made by an OhioDance appointed videographer. A video link will be available to choreographers after the performance.
OhioDance is interested in selecting pieces that represent a diverse range of aesthetics and artistry, as well as pieces that are engaging to the general public. At least one piece will be chosen from the following categories: Ballet, Contemporary, Social, or World Dance forms. Choreographers and performers need to be Professional or College level. Proper music credit is the responsibility of the choreographer.
