About Project Dance
This three day event gathers professional, pre-professional and aspiring dancers for training, performances and networking. The weekend is centered around an all day open air dance concert that is free to the public featuring local and international dance artistry in ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop and tap. Dancers gather with a common vision: to bring hope and healing through the universal language of dance. In 2024 Project Dance will present concerts in West Palm Beach, Houston, New York City, Costa Rica, Kona and Panama City Beach!

Open Air Dance Concert

A form will go out to all directors and individual performers that will details the information needed to submit. Please plan to prepare between 1-4 pieces to share. If you have additional pieces that you would like to share you may submit those once you receive the form form our stage manager, Jennifer Byers.
Our Sunday dance classes will be held at Gibney Studios in downtown NYC. A few weeks prior to our event you will receive a google form to sign up for your desired classes. We will be offering around 25 classes to choose from in various levels and genres.
Dancers may register as an individual/soloist participant. You may submit a solo for the outdoor concert performance and learn the world tour group dance that is performed throughout the event. Solos are allowed at the discretion of our stage managers and not all solos are selected for the performance.
11th Registrant Free:
For every 10 registered dancers, 1 free registration can be accessed by selecting the ticket called 11th/22nd free.
(Please note: all company directors, teachers, studio owners, or group organizers will be referred to as “directors” going forward).
Directors who plan to participate (attend Friday’s events, observe Sunday classes and/or perform on Saturday) should consider themselves a registered participant and should pay the full registration fee. Directors who are traveling with a group but not participating (only ensuring that their dancers arrive at all events) will be exempt from the registration fee. This exemption will only be offered to 1 director per group. Other teachers and directors within the group should register for the entire event. Please contact email@example.com for the non-participating director access code. Each attending dancer is required to register online.
What does the registration include?
Registration includes attendance for all weekend events including the Check-in, Project Dance Expo, Project Dance Live Show, Outdoor Dance Concert Performance, Inspirational Gatherings (optional), World Tour Group Dance Instruction, and Master Classes and an Official Project Dance T-Shirt. Upon registration, you will receive an email notification. Specific details for each event will be sent to participants via email. Registration does NOT include hotels, travel, or food.
How do I submit my dance piece(s) for review?
After registration, all directors and soloists will be sent an email with instructions to submit your pieces. Dancers that are part of a group/studio/company will not need to submit anything.
What is your cancellation policy?
If a participant is unable to attend Project Dance after registering, for any reason, ½ of the registration fee will be returned to that participant following the date of the said event.
Is there an age limit?
There is no age limit; however, the general focus of our event is for the dancer seeking to pursue a dance career. We recognize that some groups and companies have varied ages. We ask that young dancers be chaperoned appropriately.
Can chaperones/family members come to all the events?
As a registered participant, you will be notified of the policy in place for the city you are attending. When space allows, we do open the doors to those who have traveled with a dancer. If a family member or chaperone wants to ensure that they are able to attend all events, they are welcome to register for the entire event as we cannot guarantee space for them other than viewing the free outdoor dance concert.
Is there a pro-rated fee if I can only attend part of the event?
There are no pro-rated fees available for Project Dance events. Participants unable to attend portions of the event are required to fully register.

All registration deadlines will be announced on our website’s individual city pages: www.projectdance.com We offer an early bird rate and a standard rate.
