Studio A Dance in Silver Lake (SIlverlake) presents a series of dance concerts in our intimate performance venue, DanceSpot. Our goal is to provide a performance space where local companies can show their work and audiences can see dancers up close. Often choreographers may not have a place to perform, be it because of limited repertoire, or lack of funds to rent a venue. We at DanceSpot understand the dilemma and want to help to share your art.

5th annual DreamSpot (November 18) --
visionary, recurring, escape, dream in color, nightmares and daydreams, expressed through dance
Companies or soloists audition by submitting a bio and a video (DVD or youTube) of proposed piece (If your piece is a work in progress, please show us any sample of your past works with a detailed description of the proposed piece). Dances are limited to 8 minutes. Companies are limited to 3 performances within a 12-month period. Submission deadline: Three weeks prior to performance date.
* Approximately one week prior to performance, each company techs for 15 minutes at DanceSpot to get a feel of the space and to collaborate on lighting cues which we will program for you.
* One large shared dressing room is available for all dancers
* company size limed to 8 performers, unless otherwise arranged with Bill or Cristine
* Audience seating capacity is 55, and tickets will be $20 each ($25 at the door without reservations). No comps. Only one exception: If the choreographer is not dancing in his or her piece, we will comp that person as an audience member. Comps are non-transferable. Reservations made through Studio A Dance.
* We will post your dance description and dance photo on this page prior to each show so that you can link friends.
* Note: because of the nature of our theatre, floorwork is unable to be seen by much of the audience if performed downstage, so we suggest keeping the floorwork to mid-stage and upstage. Secondly, rosin is not allowed on our floor.
QUOTA: We ask that choreographers/performers meet the audience quota as follows, and we request that one performer from each dance donate 1/2 hour to help strike after the show:
a. Soloists must bring 3 audience members.
b. Duets: six
c. Trios: seven
d. Quartets and above: eight
e. Friends & family of choreographers & performers must reserve by close of Wednesday of performance week. (FYI: proceeds from Box office cover mounting expenses. And the remainder to theater improvements)
