Arizona Dance Festival 2019
The Arizona Dance Festival, now in its 19th year, will showcase an eclectic variety of choreography and dance performances from Arizona, the Southwest, and beyond. This unique setting will give audiences a taste of what is happening in Arizona's dance scene. It is a perfect platform for dance companies to get exposure and promote their work, to have a performance opportunity without having to incur the costs of producing a full performance, to experiment with new work, and to connect with others in the dance community.

We are excited to announce that the Arizona Dance Festival 2019 has expanded to a two part event:

Part One of the festival will be held at the prestigious Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts (SCPA) in Scottsdale, AZ on September 19-21, 2019. The SCPA is a landmark performance center, seating 853, which allows for a uniquely broad exposure, larger audience, a wide range of activities, and a high level of technical capabilities.

Part Two of the festival will be held at the beautiful Yavapai College Performing Arts Center (YCPAC) in Prescott, AZ on October 3-5, 2019. YCPAC is Northern Arizona's premier entertainment venue, seating 1,064 and provides a professional performing experience for all.

Dance works are chosen through an unbiased adjudication process, with attention given to professionalism, diversity, creativity and dynamic performance. Applications are accepted from anywhere from around the world, though preference is given to Arizona dance artists and companies.

DANCE FILMS are also strongly encouraged for submission. Proposals for teaching master classes are also being accepted.

The festivals will give you or your company great exposure, and it’s a fun way to share your art with colleagues from around the state as well as guest dance artists from beyond.

WHO CAN APPLY? - The Arizona Dance Festival is open to dancers, choreographers, dance companies, emerging dance artists and pre-professional dance ensembles of any dance form. The performance is limited up to a maximum of 10 minutes per dance. Submit Work that will not be performed at any major venue (within a 20 mile radius) less than one month prior to festival dates.
