Helsinki Dance Festival Stage

Video auditions to Live Stage, Open Stage and Video Stage 15.4.-15.5.2024!

The Live Stage aims to provide young people with diverse opportunities for artistic expression. The Live Stage was born out of a desire to offer and facilitate a new and professionally operated platform for dance enthusiasts.

Does it bother you that you have to think about how to showcase your dance artistry within the 4-minute time limit of dance competitions and spring performances at dance schools? Us too!

You can apply with any concept or performance format, from traditional black box pieces to site-specific works or even video pieces (Video Stage). The piece can be created by the dancers themselves or choreographed by a professional. Or anything in between!

Open Stage is for all dance styles, dance groups and dance artists!

Whether your style is traditional ballet, street dance, dance acrobatics or even folk dance, the Open Stage has space and opportunity to shine. Open Stage is held on the Alexander Theatre stage at Helsinki Dance Festival.
