Kat Wildish Showcases Performing in NY Showcase

Dear Choreographer,

I'm assistant to Kat Wildish of Kat Wildish Presents, Inc. and we are pleased to invite you and your dancers to participate in our 2018 Performing in NY Showcase at The Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance on March 25, 2018. We are trying to secure the March program before the rush of the holidays and we want to be sure you make it on our list to reserve a space if you’re available!

All programming, scheduling, and publicity will go through Kat Wildish Presents. We are all digital: we no longer accept hard copies of documents or music. All paperwork must be scanned and emailed. Performance music must be emailed as an MP3.

Below you will find the basic terms for participating in these exciting performances. Please let me know as soon as possible if you accept these terms and the offer to be included on our program. After your confirmation, I will send contracts, related documents, and further information.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the overwhelming interest in our last showcase, we must limit the program to the first 15 groups who respond and pay the initial $180 registration fee. All others who reply will be placed on the waiting list and added if groups drop out.


Showcase - Please contact Kat Wildish if there is any questions,

Basic Terms:

• Dance pieces will be no longer than 6 minutes. Large group numbers are preferred. MINIMUM NUMBER OF DANCERS IS 6. Anything from 1-5 dancers will not be accepted, to allow more dancers performing opportunities. Please contact us about Kat’s Spotlight Series if you have fewer dancers.

• Choreographers must pay a non-refundable $180 participation fee upon signing the contract to secure a spot on the program. This covers the participation fees for your first 6 dancers and is due December 20..

• All participating dancers will complete a registration form and release before any participation, and an artist agreement/photo release form (at tech). All dancers beyond a cast of six must pay the required $30 participation fee per dancer for registration and administration costs. If you are a professional company, the director can be responsible for these fees, but all professional dancers must be paid for as well as all students. Additional agreements and documents may be required to be signed by choreographers and participants.

• Completed program notes including run time must be emailed to Taylor Gordon (taylorjgordon@gmail.com). Performance quality music should be emailed to Taylor as an MP3 .

• Choreographers are responsible for their own rehearsal space/time and costumes and are responsible for relaying performance schedules and information to their own dancers. There is no compensation for these performances.

• Details on ticket sales and prices will be available soon.

Please let me know your interest, and we look forward to working with you.
