 Update:  Deadline Extended to July 24, 2020


Virtual Pathways Dance Festival 2020 will be a four day-long virtual dance festival produced by Alyssandra Katherine Dance, Co-Presented by ODC Theater online. The performances will be live-streamed in real time August 6th-9th, 2020. The roster will feature works spanning genres, highlighting the breadth and diversity of dance styles in a new digital format.

Alyssandra Katherine Dance's mission is to bring visibility to dance companies and dance producers nationally, giving chosen companies an opportunity to showcase work to new audiences and widen their reach at no cost. We seek to use this festival as a platform to provide financial support to contributing artists and support innovative works through monetary donations and ticket sales.

Each evening will host a prolific company or choreographer headlining the performance. (Headliners are not a part of this open call for submissions).

Each night will be bound together by a different theme:



-Home/ Sanctuary

-Time/ Scope

We are looking for pieces that have been completed, performed, filmed and archived. (Note: we are not looking for work created and shot during quarantine). Each work must be no more than 10 minutes.

These dance works can span genres and styles of dance. Works will be selected by a diverse panel representing the dance aforementioned dance communities.

AKD will split one portion of Box Office ticketing revenue among all the artists participating on each respective evening, and another portion of ticket sales will be given to support ODC. The festival will advertise each company's individual digital platforms for increased support and visibility.

We plan to hold a Q and A following each performance and hope that all choreographers who are part of the event can participate during their evening. *Please submit the work you intend to show during the festival.
