Making Move Dance Festival 2017

Call for Proposals

The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) invites New York City-based dance companies to apply to an open call for the eighth annual Making Moves Dance Festival, a dance celebration set to be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center (JPAC). This Open Call is open to choreographers working in all genres of dance including, but not limited to: modern/contemporary, ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre and folk/world.

Making Moves offers 3 opportunities for dance companies:

  1. An opportunity for three groups to perform a 30 minute piece each at an outdoor presentation. Each group will receive a $500 stipend to present an existing work. (Afternoon) 
  2. An opportunity for three groups to perform a 15-20 minute piece each at an indoor stage presentation. Each group will receive a $600 stipend to present an existing work. (Evening)
  3. An opportunity for a choreographer to create a 30-45 minute work, commissioned by JCAL, which will be presented at the evening presentation. The choreographer will receive a $3,500 stipend to create a new work and will have access to JCAL’s rehearsal space for up to 80 hours. (Commission)        

Each group can request to be considered for one, two, or all three opportunities, but each selected group will only be awarded one opportunity. All groups will be provided with access to the space for one dress rehearsal and one tech rehearsal prior to the day of the event.
