  • NOTE: If you are a dance performer, you may want to look into these other options!!
  • Decisions will be made and communicated to applicants by late April.
  • Upon final selection, performers will be given initial details regarding performance time, location, and any equipment that will be provided. Final logistics regarding load-in, parking, etc. will be sent closer to the festival weekend.
  • All performers are provided with a small honorarium.
