Co-Production Proposals

In response to the inspiring growth of contemporary dance in Guelph, Guelph Dance is offering a community-based initiative: a chance for local, professional dance artists to create their own Festival event! Artists are encouraged to dream, scheme, and create innovative and cutting-edge ways to perform dance in Guelph.

Call for Proposals 2016

18th Annual Festival

Submissions for the 2016 Guelph Dance Festival will be accepted until September 15, 2015. Please visit the Submissions page for full details.
