Each year, local dance makers ages 18-35 submit performance videos and the final participants are selected by an esteemed curatorial team led by Jean Isaacs with George Willis and Margaret Marshall.

A panel of four qualified expert judges - and the audience - will award $2,000 in prize money in three categories: "Audience Favorite," "Most Original Choreography," and "Most Compelling Performance by a Single Dancer." Eleven choreographers will compete in this energizing and exciting evening of new dance.

The grand prize of $1,000 for Most Original Choreography, will be augmented this year by a fully-produced evening of the winner's choreography at our 2017 Live Arts Fest.
