Link Audition Festival

May 17-21, 2021

What is LINK?

LINK is a project for advanced dancers (18+) to make professional connections, audition for companies/projects, and to experience an in depth exploration of contemporary dance. Our world-class line-up of teachers and choreographers provide an intense and powerful incubator for dancers to develop. Each day includes ballet, contemporary form (improvisation and more), and one intimate choreographic process. LINK is truly an all-inclusive career development resource for dancers.

This year will be like no other with a virtual choreographic experience!
Choreographers will workshop with attendees virtually, meaning the showcase presentation at the end of the festival will be a dance for film collaboration. Choreographers will lead their dancers in phrases and techniques that the dancers will film and submit for film editing. The final vision will come together at the end of the week with the showcase presentation.

Now Announcing In-Person LINK! For LINK 2021, we will have limited spots available for an in-person festival. More information coming soon!
