Hosted by Haven Movement Company
March 16, 17 at 8:00

Safe Harbors Lobby of the Ritz
107 Broadway, Newburgh, NY 12550


Applications are open for Small Plates Choreography Festival, a curated dance performance series to be presented on March 16 and 17, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. and March 18 at 4:00 at Safe Harbors Lobby of the Ritz in Newburgh, NY. Emerging and established choreographers interested in presenting work in an intimate venue in the thriving artistic community in Newburgh are welcome to apply.

Safe Harbors Lobby of the Ritz performance space seats approximately 60 people. The dimensions of the performance area are approximately 24′ wide x 24′ deep with seating on all sides. The performance is low-tech and somewhat informal.

Ensemble dance works no longer than 10 minutes long will be considered, solos works no longer than 8 minutes. If your work is longer than our time limits, please edit your video to show how the work will be adjusted to fall within the constraints. Work that is over time will not be considered.

Completed work will be given priority over works-in-progress or proposed work. We will consider work that is only available for one of the evenings, but priority acceptance is given to artists that are able to show work on both/either programs. Be sure to indicate your availability on the application.

Small Plates creates a growth environment by holding guided Q&A feedback sessions with the audience after each performance. All performers and choreographers are expected to remain on-site to participate in the Q&A. Local dance and artistic professionals are encouraged to attend as audience members and bring their voices to this conversation, and to provide choreographers with valuable feedback and networking opportunities. This artist/audience interface is what makes Small Plates truly special.

Please submit your video by uploading it to YouTube, Vimeo or another video service online, and include the link in your application. Do not email your video to Small Plates. Applications without a video link will not be considered.

An application fee of $25.00 per piece is required. Fees are payable through this link
https://www.paypal.me/smallplatesdance/25 (paypal = payment@bedancegroup.com)
We are not able to accept other forms of payment. Your fee must be paid before your work will be considered.

Choreographers who have their work chosen will be given one complimentary ticket to each performance, and are expected to help populate the audience by bringing at least two paid patrons to each performance in which their work appears. Choreographers will also receive a video and photographs of their work after the show.

Dancers and choreographers must be available for technical rehearsal at 4:00 on performance days.

The deadline to apply is January 20, 2018. You will be notified by email on or before February 3 with our decision of acceptance or rejection. If your piece is accepted, you will have one week after you receive our email to submit your program information, technical information, publicity photos, and sound file.

To apply, please complete the entire application form at http://www.smallplatesdance.com/apply and pay the application fee. Incomplete or unpaid applications will not be considered.
