Creative Performances

Calling choreographers and dance makers!

There is so much going on with the RestartNY: Live Performance initiative. Finally, Sangeeta Yesley of Creative Performances has been able to curate a Dance Festival in November 2021.

Dance Bloc NYC is Dixon Place's dance festival. At Dance Block NYC, festival artists will have the opportunity to showcase their dance work in Dixon Place Theater. Dixon Place's mission is to present new work, both works-in-progress and finished work, by early & mid-career artists. Dixon Place is a FULLY EQUIPPED PERFORMANCE SPACE measuring 35 ft X 20 ft with a SPRUNG MASONITE FLOOR. View Dixon Place's COVID Guidelines

The 2021 Festival will provide opportunities for choreographers from all genres of dance forms to showcase work around the following themes:

1. Strength
2. Equality
3. Respect

Proposed works should be new or recently re-worked with primarily new choreography, both works-in-progress and finished work.  If invited to participate, artists should plan to show the same piece as described in their application.

Please Note:

* Works involving 4 or more dancers presented at the Festival may vary in length between 15 minutes and 25 minutes
* Solos can be between 5 and 12 minutes in duration. Works outside of these time frames may not be considered.

Festival Dates:

November 18,19 & 20 (If selected, your work will be included in a program in one of the 3 days)

Deadline to Apply:
