as a participant & presenter

Presentations will be from 15 - 120 minutes & can take form as lectures, performances, movement-based classes, round table discussions...whatever you’d like to present/share/facilitate. The space used will be a dance studio, with low-to-no technical ability, outside of electrical outlets.

There is no curator or producer for this event. The Lovelies are doing the minimal administrative tasks necessary to make it happen, and registering for the event like everyone else.

As Kathy Couch says: The People will make it what it is.

Event Rate for Students / Half-day Rate: $75

Regular Event Rate: $125

deposit of $50 is requested on the Registration Form in order to reserve your spot.

Studio rental and paying presenting artists is driving pricing, and the goal is to break even. If event cost is prohibitive, student rate is acceptable for any participant that needs it.
