2020 Call for Panels
We are so excited to offer a wide range of panels at BluesGeek, but we need your help! Panels are not only a mechanism for discussion, but they are a great place for dancers who have been doing research to shine.
If you are interested in submitting an idea for a panel, please read through the requirements below. DEADLINE MAY 1.
Types of panels
We are accepting proposals for two kinds of panels:
- Exploratory Panel (1 hour):
Discussion of Personal authenticity and blues dance.
- Midnight Moment (15 minutes):
Think of it like a Ted Talk – a brief but well-researched discussion on blues culture.
Please submit the following information to us with the subject line “Panel Application”:
- Your name, contact information, and home dance scene.
- Which type of panel you are applying for (see Types of Panels section of this page).
- Title of Panel
- Summary of the panel and why the content would benefit the Blues community (250-500 words).
- List of supplies needed (e.g.projector and screen; sound equipment; etc.)
If your proposal does not meet the above criteria, it will not be considered.
What you get out of it
If we accept your proposal:
- The chance to have meaningful discussion with your dance community.
- Panelists are required to pay full tuition to the event; however, if your panel is chosen you will be offered the following reimbursement:
$75.00 USD for a 1 hour panel
$40.00 USD for a 15 minute panel
