Talking Bodies: Choreographers Fest


Collective Soles Dance is creating a biannual open forum choreography festival for the Tampa Bay area.

This event is an open floor for local choreographers/dancers/artists to share –

            a work-in-process

            a fragmented idea(s)

            a completed thought

            a fully-realized work

            or any combination or imagining thereof




To be a participating choreographer/dancer/artist, you need to pre-register via this form.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

·      CSD is accepting choreographic sharings that are seven minutes or less in length and can be any dance style or format.

·      It is FREE to present in this festival.

·      Please keep your sharing to 7 minutes or less.

·      You can submit more than one sharing to present – but only one is guaranteed to be presented

o   If there is room for additional sharing(s), they will be selected via a lottery drawing.

·      All participating choreographers will receive a high-quality video of their sharing

·      Held in the Blackbox Studio at Jansen Dance Project – with one light look (lights up/lights down)

·      Casual, relaxed atmosphere – dancers can enter from the audience; audience members are free to enter/exit throughout.

·      Responses to your work – we will encourage our audience members to respond via writing down thoughts or speaking directly to you afterwards
