What does the application consist of?

Applications can be submitted via an online tool as of 15 November 2023. The link to the tool will appear on 15 November 2023. 

For the application we need the following information (in English): personal data, a CV, a letter of motivation, one portrait photo and links to videos of past artistic works. One recommendation letter is optional.

What do you expect from my letter of motivation?

What do you think you could experience / get from participating in danceWEB? Why are you interested in working with the mentor Isabel Lewis?
Please describe yourself, your artistic way of working; what does distinguish you as an artist; what are you currently interested in/working on, what drives you? Where are you currently standing in your artistic career, in which direction do you wanna go? Or did you already arrive? Or do you never wanna arrive? 
These are only guidelines; you can arrange your letter of motivation in whatever way you consider it suitable for presenting yourself. 


Who can write a recommendation letter?

Recommendation letters can be written by choreographers or other dance artists you have worked with, teachers or professors who have accompanied you for a certain period or who have experienced you in your way of working. The more these people are familiar with the danceWEB Programme, the better they can measure what will be coming up to you, with what you will be confronted. (Former WEBers and artistic mentors usually have the best experience!) The recommendation letters have to be in English and can be addressed to the Artistic Committee of danceWEB 2024. Normally a recommendation letter covers no more than one page. They don’t have to be originally signed.


How is my participation financed?

If selected for danceWEB 2024, the participants still need to find a financial contribution (EUR 2.400,-) to their total program expenses from national/regional funding institutions in their home country/country of residence in order to secure their participations.


How does it work with finding a financial contribution to my total program expenses?

In case you get selected for danceWEB 2024, you still need to find a financial contribution (EUR 2.400.-) to your total program expenses from local funding bodies in your home country/country of residence in order to secure your participation. danceWEB will assist you in finding financial support. You don't need to have secured the funding already for the application!
A participation does not include travel, visa, insurance and per diem expenses. It is recommended to find financial support for these expenses as well in case you get selected for the program.


How many photos can I attach and what kind of photos should they be?
