APPLY TODAY FOR THE SAN PEDRO ♥ FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
DANCE + OTHER AREAS - SEPT 17-18, 2016
The San Pedro ♥ Festival of the Arts is a free family event featuring dance, music & Visual Arts/Crafts Booths in the Ports O'Call Village on the waterfront. This will be its10th year. The festival was again awarded a Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, Festival Grant, and for the first time a 2016-17 Community Investment Grant from the Port of LA. Several summer/ fall free previews lead to the main event on Sept 17-18, 2016.
Last year the Dance component included 14 professional and 7 pre-professional companies from all over the Southland. You can see more about previous festivals at www.triartSP.com. There is an interest in all dance forms performed by professional companies including traditional ballet and modern as well as ethnic dance forms and hip-hop. Most of the works were traditional in their presentation last year, but several companies did interactive pieces that involved audience members, or used the park area and site itself.
There is an honorarium for all professional companies selected.
This is for an outdoor Marley covered stage approximately 32 x 28 feet. Each set will be 10-25 minutes. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups each day, so we'd like to hear from schools also. The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after. Early deadline is now through June 30, late deadline July 15.
Last year we received many more applications than there was room for, so if you were not selected before, please try again, perhaps with a different piece. If you were in it last season, please let us know if you are interested this year, and what different work you might like to do. There is always great diversity in the programming. To apply:
1- email louisehr@LAChoreographersAndDancers.org what you would like to perform, including a digital press packet, contact info, and video link.
2- include an application fee of $25 (before June 30), or $30 (between July 1-15). On our web site, www.LAChoreographersAndDancers.org, click on "News" and use the button in 2nd paragraph for the application fee payment through PayPal. Or mail a check to LA C&D, 351 S. Virgil Ave, Los Angeles CA 90020.
Professional companies- 10 to 25', pre-professional/community under 10'. If it is a new work, please include projected music.
