What we will need from you:

A high resolution video of your Dance group. 

Though we would all prefer to showcase something that is new and that you have been working on in your virtual and in studio classes this year, we must make sure to follow county guidelines for COVID. If it is not possible for you to create something new safely, we invite you to dive into your video archives and share your favorite past performances and choreography.

Along with your video, we will be sharing your company name and your organization’s website. We recommend that you link viewers to either your donation page, or to a page where parents can sign up their children for classes. This way the virtual audience can learn more about your organization and it can serve as a fundraiser and promotion for your group. 

Every day sjDANCEco will be sending emails to our 3000+ subscribers and we invite you to send each email to your subscribers as well. This will increase viewers - helping to bring in new audience members for all. 

There is always an enormous amount of organization to ensure that the Festival runs smoothly and for it to truly represent the diversity of Dance in our region equitably. This is true more than ever this year as we work with a new format to bring an exciting event to our Community. For the festival this year - we have reduced the participant fee to $50 for the first video submission, and $40 for the second video. There is a two video submission limit, and each video must be 5 minutes or less. If the cost of entry is a barrier for your group, please reach out to chloe@sjdanceco.org directly as we do have scholarships available. 

We are excited - and hope you are too! As is so every year, we cannot do this without You. 

Though this will definitely be a different kind of festival, it has the potential of reaching beyond our community to share the BEAUTY, WONDER and MAGIC of DANCE - which is thrilling.

We look forward to dancing with you in the virtual plane. 

19th Annual sjDANCEco Dance Festival 
A Virtual Event April 19th - 25th, 2021​

 It is “A Time To Dance” - and WE HAVE NEVER NEEDED IT MORE!  

 The Spring Festival means so much to all of us, and to go another year without celebrating the roots of sjDANCEco, and the core of what brings our dance community together feels impossible. So, we are excited to bring the ‘Splendor and Power of Dance’ to our community once again. However, with the current state of COVID in California and many ‘unknowns’ ahead, we have decided to move our festival to a virtual event. Even though we all would prefer to be together, dancing on a stage with an audience, we want to make sure that we get Dance out to the public and for everyone to remain safe and healthy. We hope that you will join us!   

sjDANCEco’s Spring festival is always set the week of National Dance Week - and as such, we would like to honor Dance Nation Week by having a weeklong event - April 19 - 25. sjDANCEco will be sending out one email per day, highlighting your dances in video form. There will be between 5 and 7 dances sent each day.
