Submissions Now Open for Pitchbook Volume II 

Submit your new work now through October 1!

Pitchbook, American Dance Abroad’s biannual publication of new works by U.S. choreographers, is open for submissions now through October 1, 2016. This second volume of Pitchbook will feature five in-development projects (each presented in double-page spreads) and ten ready-to-tour projects (each presented on single pages).

“Pitching” new work to potential producers and presenters is a great way to attract international partners and funding. Pitchbook publicizes new projects without the necessity or expense of traveling.

It is available through print-ready, digital, and online formats, and is distributed by American Dance Abroad to international programmers at marketplaces and professional gatherings such as the Tanzmesse, PAMS, and CINARS.


If your work is selected, you will be required to submit up to two images, your company logo (all high resolution), artist concept of the new work, a five-minute video pitch (must be available for public viewing), and other pertinent information.

There's Still Time to Submit for
