Small Plates creates a growth environment by facilitating feedback sessions with the audience after each performance. All performers and choreographers are expected to remain on-site to participate in this part of the performance. 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.

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 at 10:00 a.m. for the afternoon performance and 12:00 noon for the evening performance.

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2019. You will be notified by email on or before March 15 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.

All work will be adjudicated by a panel of career choreographers and dance professionals holding BFA's/MFA's from university dance programs across the nation, and experienced in Dance, Production and Mixed Media Arts.
