Battery Dance is now accepting applications for its newest addition, Young Voices in Dance. Applications must be submitted online by June 1, 2021 at https://batterydance.org/youngvoices.
Young Voices in Dance, Battery Dance Festival’s newest addition, celebrates the next generation of choreographers. The program highlights the intellectual curiosity, innovation, and artistic excellence of youth (ages 15-22) from around the world. Young Voices in Dance will feature live performances with original works made and danced by youth. Battery Dance encourages submissions that have a clear concept or theme, integrate interdisciplinary collaborations, and showcase a unique voice as a choreographer. All styles of dance are eligible to apply. Selected pieces will perform at the 40th Annual Battery Dance Festival at Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park in NYC on August 16, 2021. If you are unable to travel to NYC and would like to submit a virtual dance film, the top dance film selections will be streamed as bonus content during the Festival.
