All emerging London choreographers are invited to present their best work in the 2020 festival.   

The Emerging Artist show theme will be “New Beginnings” and it will take place outdoors on grass. Learn more about the festival at www.londondancefestival.ca

Apply with your idea for a dance piece of 3 to 15 minutes long, in any style. Remember, movement and music content must be appropriate for a family audience. Choreographers ages 15 and up are welcome to apply. 

This year’s theme will be “New Beginnings.” Applicants will interpret this theme through their choreography, expressing their own ideas about fresh starts, introductions, growing, creating, launching, emerging, opening, and awakening.

PLEASE NOTE: The festival is especially interested in works with 3 or more dancers. Therefore, we will be accepting a limited number of solos and duets.

Choreographers will receive an honourarium. Performances will take place on the back lawn of Eldon House, outdoors on grass with professional sound. Tech/dress rehearsals will happen earlier the same day.

Preference is given to London and area artists, but we welcome submissions from across Canada.
