Dance Teacher Summit

 
The Dance Teacher Summit is committed to promoting emerging choreographers who further the art of dance. The Capezio A.C.E. Award Competition is a great opportunity for choreographers to expose their work to one of the most influential audiences in dance.

  1. First make sure you meet the eligibility requirements:
    • All entries must be one of, or a combination of, these styles: jazz, lyrical, contemporary, modern, musical theater, tap, ballet or hip-hop.
    • All entries must not exceed 6 minutes.
    • Choreographers and dancers may be professional, amateur, or a combination.
    • There must be at least 5 dancers in the group and all dancers must be ages 16+.
    • All entries may be entered by the choreographer NOT by a dance group that has hired the choreographer to set the work.
    • All performances must use music on CD.
    • Performances can include props but no "sets.”
    • All entries must be available to compete at The Dance Teacher Summit in NYC, August 2-4, 2010.
  2. Upload your video to DanceMedia.com on The Dance Teacher Summit Channel. Be sure to do so BEFORE June 1, 2010. Please Note: The piece you enter with to become a Finalist, does NOT need to be the same piece that you compete in NYC. It must however meet all eligibility requirements. The video can be from a past performance and does not need to be specifically video-taped for the Capezio A.C.E. Award.
  3. Representatives from Dance Teacher magazine and Capezio will select and contact 14 Finalists that will be invited to NYC to compete during the Dance Teacher Summit at the Hilton Hotel. One additional Finalist will be selected by viewer’s choice on DanceMedia.com. Please note: All Finalists and their dancers will be responsible for their own travel and lodging. Finalists and their dancers are able to book discounted rooms under the Dance Teacher Summit room block at the Hilton NY. All Finalist choreographers will be able to attend the Dance Teacher Summit classes and events at NO charge. All Finalist dancers will be given 4 free classes (separate from the Summit attendees) with a select few faculty members. All Finalists (choreographers and dancers) will receive a $100 gift card from Capezio, year-long subscription to Dance Spirit magazine, certificate of participation and a professionally edited video of their performance.
  4. The evening of August 3rd will be dedicated to the Finals Competition. A distinguished panel of judges will select the winners of the three awards:
