Perform with NCDF during our 25th Anniversary Season!

November 3, 2014 § Leave a comment

The NC Dance Festival is now accepting applications for the 2015-16 NC Dance Festival tour and the 2015 American Dance Festival/NCDF “Here and Now” performance.

North Carolina dance artists may apply to perform as part of ADF or the NCDF tour or both. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of nationally recognized choreographers and NCDF adjudicators. Artists selected to present at ADF will be offered a spot on the NCDF statewide tour, with additional NCDF touring artists chosen by NCDF adjudicators.

The NC Dance Festival goes to four communities within the state and participating artists are expected to perform the same dance at all sites. Touring artists are also asked to take part in Festival outreach programs, which involves teaching classes or performing in mini-concerts in a variety of settings in association with concert weekends. Additional pay is involved for these programs.

The ADF/NCDF “Here and Now” performance will be held in Durham, NC on June 25, 2015 in the Reynolds Industries Theater during the American Dance Festival season.


Submissions are due January 3, 2015.  

Dances must be a maximum of 15 minutes long, and must be complete (no works-in-progress).

Choreographers selected for the ADF and/or NCDF performances are expected to obtain all necessary copyright permissions for music and text.

Choreographers enrolled in degree granting programs are not eligible to apply.

Artists are not eligible to tour with the NCDF two years in a row, but may submit work to be considered for the ADF/NCDF production. Artists who have presented work in the ADF/NCDF productions during 2013 or 2014 may not apply for ADF consideration this year.

Send a DVD along with a curriculum vitae and a $20 application fee to:

NC Dance Festival
306 Aberdeen Terrace
Greensboro NC 27403

Applications must be received by January 3, 2015.

Please let us know if you have presented this work in North Carolina within the last year, or plan to present it in North Carolina within the next year.

Works are selected in a blind review process.  Please be sure that the recorded material does not have your name on it.
