The Baxter Dance Festival is now calling on dancers and choreographers for applications for this year’s line-up.

Following the success of the 10th anniversary of the annual Baxter Dance Festival last year, the organisers are now calling for entries from dance studios, schools, companies, groups and independent dance makers, as well as proposals from choreographers.

The Dance Festival will take place from 8 to 17 October. The main programme will consist of invited and commissioned works, as well as work by established professional choreographers and companies.

The off-main programme on 10 October will showcase work by up-and-coming choreographers (including student work) while the fringe programme the next Saturday will include work by youth groups, dance schools, school groups, traditional dance groups and others.

The running time for each dance work is 10 minutes for the main programme, 5 minutes for the off-main programme and 3 minutes for the fringe programme – for solos, duets or trios. The limit for quartets or bigger ensembles is 20 minutes (main), 10 (off-main) and 7 (fringe).

The Baxter Theatre Centre will provide a comprehensive production package which includes lighting, sound, technical assistance, publicity, box office facilities, printed programmes and pre-show rehearsal arrangements, making it a hassle-free experience for participants.V

Visit or or collect an application form at the Baxter’s reception desk in the main foyer.
