We are inviting emerging London choreographers to present work in the 2019 festival. The festival will take place in various locations in London, Ontario from June 28th to June 30th. The Emerging Artist show theme will be “Awaken Summer” and it will take place outdoors on Friday, June 28th, 2019 at Eldon House. Learn more about the festival at

The festival is seeking dances of 3 to 15 minutes by emerging artists in all styles. Choreographers ages 16 and up are welcome to apply. For the first time this year the Emerging performance will have a theme: “Awaken Summer”. Applicants will interpret this theme through their choreography, expressing their own ideas about awakening, emerging, growing, blooming, beginning, sunshine, heat, and all things summer.

PLEASE NOTE: This year the festival is especially interested in works with 3 or more dancers. We will be accepting a very limited number of solos and duets.

From all submissions we will select approximately 8-10 pieces. Choreographers will receive a performance fee. Performances will take place on the back lawn of Eldon House, outdoors on grass in the early evening with professional sound. Tech/dress rehearsals will happen earlier the same day.

Preference is given to London and area artists, but we welcome submissions from across Canada. Movement and music content must be appropriate for a family audience.
