FORM Dance Projects Invites Young Dancers & Choreographers to Participate in Sharp Short Dance 2015

Applications are now open for visionary and creative dancers and choreographers, aged 21 years and under, to take part in Sharp Short Dance, a dance festival coordinated by FORM Dance Projects.

From 10 to 14 November, Sharp Short Dance will showcase short, new and innovative dance works from the dance industry’s finest young talent. The festival encourages young artists to strive for their own artistic excellence and supports participation in all genres of dance.

Artists can enter their dance work to one of three heats, which are separated by genre. Selected works will then continue into the final that will be judged by a panel of industry professionals. From krumping to classical, jazz to contemporary, all participants in Sharp Short Dance are eligible for the Festival’s awards including Most Innovative Choreography, Outstanding Male Performer, Outstanding Female Performer, Solo, Duet and Ensemble Performance and the Audience Choice Award.

Sharp Short Dance provides professional development opportunities for young artists to network with industry experts and mentoring for those participating in the final heat.
