The Sayaw! Dance Challenge offers winners a chance to be a part of an upcoming visit to the Philippines by a critically acclaimedcontemporary American ballet company.
The Trey McIntyre Project, a Boise, Idaho based group known for its “American heartland”–inspired dance aesthetic, will be in the Philippines in May of this year under the U.S. State Department’s DanceMotion USA program, to showcase contemporary American dance through visits, workshops, and performances.
The group will also travel to China, South Korea, and Vietnam to perform and engage in outreach activities with local communities. To inaugurate DanceMotion USA’s first international exchange program, McIntyre will select a dance company from one of these four countries that will be invited to tour in the United States.
McIntyre will choose the top five videos and fans will be asked to vote for the winning video. Deadline for submission of entries is on midnight of April 22, 2012 (Philippine time). Winners will be announced on May 3.
Be creative. Be original. Celebrate the language of movement. Sayaw na!
