CALL FOR LGBTQIA+ Artists/Teachers/Performers for Excessive Realness 2019!

Excessive Realness, a dance intensive geared toward LGTBQIA+ dancers and performing artists, is calling for LGBTQIA+ teachers/artists/performers for the second dance intensive in the Boulder/Denver area either June 13th-16th or June 20th-23rd, 2019. For information about Excessive Realness check out our website HERE!

The deadline to apply is October 31st.

Artists will be compensated for teaching and performing at the final performance entitled, The Spill. The amount is contingent upon

1) how many participants sign up for the workshop and

2) the amount of financial support we receive. Along with this compensation, artists will receive a small travel stipend.

What we are asking for:


  • Teachers of various genres of dance and performing arts classes that are geared toward creating space for LGBTQIA+ people.We welcome all dance techniques—including non-Euro-Western and Euro-Western dance—and experimental or discussion classes. If you have another creative idea for a class beyond what we mentioned, we would love to hear about it!
  • Artists who are also willing to engage in the round table discussion. The intention of the roundtable is to create  meaningful, honest, and difficult dialogue around dance, performance art, artistic practices, and LGBTQIA+ topics.
    • Some topics for roundtable discussions might include:
      • How our intersectional identities interact with our art and teaching?
      • What does it mean to carve out safe(r) space for LGBTQIA+ people in our own dance communities?
