CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD the 2015 Move Me Performance and Activity Application.
The deadline to submit an application is December 22. 

The Festival theme this year is “The Evolution of the Arts” - The history or historical context of your particular art form.
What does this mean? Here are a few ideas:
  • Provide a performance that depicts your art form’s origins. Examples might include heritage dance forms and folklore.
  • Perform a piece of music and discuss the nature of the piece, when it was written, who was the composer, and its significance in the field.
  • Present an excerpt from a theatrical work such as Shakespeare or a Broadway musical and discuss how it is relevant to today’s culture..

For questions about the application process, contact joanna@bmdc.org.
