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. Click here to apply.
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.
