In 2019, Belconnen Arts Centre will be presenting the 10th season of Dance on the Edge on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May 2019. We are thrilled to be offering a number of commissions for new and edgy dance works for the event. This year there will be available commissions of $1,000 each for works of 5+ minutes and $2,000 for works of 10+ minutes. We hope to involve local professional dance makers, performers and filmmakers, especially those with significant connections to the ACT.

Thus we would like to invite you/your group to consider participating in our Ausdance ACT Dance Week 2019 event, to showcase the quality professional dance work being created locally. If you/your group are interested and available, please read the Expression of Interest documentation, complete and return by Monday 4 February 2019. Please note the selection criteria carefully.

If your application is chosen by the selection panel, we will confirm within the week, to enable you a good length of time for devising/rehearsal/completion of your work to performance quality.

We are delighted to be hosting this Ausdance ACT Dance Week 2019 event, and we look forward to receiving your application.
