Dusk Dances' 2017 Season is now programmed.

If you would like to apply to Dusk Dances as a choreographer for future seasons, please send us a proposal that includes:

. A description of your piece
. A CV
. Support material (DVD, VHS, Youtube)

Choreographers can apply to adapt an existing piece to a park environment. If you are applying in this category, please include the piece you would like to remount in your support material.

Choreographers can also apply for the commission of a new work. If you are applying in this category, please include as much information as you can in your piece description (number of dancers, music, site, theme, etc.) Please note that it is always preferable to include a variety of pieces in your support material. This allows us to get to know you as a choreographer.

Programming is normally completed a year and a half in advance, with commissioned works being submitted for our grant proposals in the fall, for the following summer’s festival. (ie. we submit our grant proposals in fall 2017 for the 2018 festival).

We encourage you to see the event before applying, and to let curator Sylvie Bouchard know about your upcoming performances.

If you would like to apply as an opening band, or opening group (live music and dance), please send us support material as well as a description of your proposed half an hour opening act.

If you would like to apply as a host, please contact Sylvie Bouchard directly by e-mail.

All proposals should be mailed to:
