Temple University Dance Alumni Showcase 2020


The Conwell Dance Theater Production Committee invites you to submit a proposal for the twenty-second annual Dance Alumni Showcase, which will take place in October of 2020.

The Showcase plays an essential role in keeping alumni engaged with the current Dance Department. It provides an opportunity for professional presentation of your work, and gives current students a chance to talk with working choreographers and performers about the challenges that face them following graduation.

The selection process will be adjudicated by the students on the Production Committee.

In order to fairly spread the opportunity, we will not accept proposals from anyone who has:

Graduated in the past two years OR

Been presented by us in the past two years.

To help the jury make selections, please submit:

3. A short cover letter.

Let us know what your artistic life is like now – including your concerns and goals with the piece in question, and what concert format you think would be best for your work.

1. A one page proposal for the work.

Along with a description of the creative work please include the proposed length, number of performers, and any other technically relevant information.

2. A one page résumé.

Please make sure this includes your complete contact information.

4. A video sample.

This may be work you have already done on the proposed piece, or other pieces that represent your work.

You may submit a video file or a link to view it online. Mailed DVDs will also be accepted.

*** Please make sure each item is clearly labelled with your name. ***

The deadline for submissions is December 2, 2019

Please discuss this call for work with other alumni, especially if there is a chance that we do not have their current contact information.

Be sure to keep your information up-to-date at:


Thank you, we look forward to learning about your work!
