The Capezio A.C.E. Awards is a choreography competition dedicated to introducing the next generation of emerging and influential choreographers to the commercial dance world. Now in its seventh season, the Capezio A.C.E. Awards receives hundreds of choreography submissions every year, representing all styles of dance from tap, jazz, ballet, modern to musical theatre. The top 15 applicants are selected to present their work at The Dance Teacher Summit. A panel of representatives from Capezio, the Dance Teacher Summit, Dance Spirit Magazine, Dance Teacher Magazine and the dance industry deliberate to select 3 choreographers who will receive funds to produce a full-length show.
* Please note: The Dance Teacher Summit will be paying for rental of the theater, basic production elements (lighting, sound, etc.), and promotion. The "production budget" is for the choreographer to use for any salaries, travel, props, costumes, etc. For questions, please call the Dance Teacher Summit office at 818-432-8499.
