  • Prepare and submit a solo (three to four minutes in duration) in a contemporary dance form of your choice that allows you to demonstrate your skill in the form.
  • Dancers should submit two minutes of improvisation on the theme of “contrasts.” Applicants can address this in any style of their choosing. Music is optional.
  • If dancers have examples of their choreographic work, they are invited to upload a sample no longer than 5 minutes in duration.
  • The video should be framed so we can see your entire body. Wear clothing that is appropriate to the dance genre or styles you are choosing to perform.
