Dancers, groups, companies, schools and academies in Brazil and abroad only have until June 15th to register for Prêmio Desterro (Desterro Prize) - 7th Florianópolis Dance Festival, which will be held from August 30th to September 4th, at Teatro Ademir Rosa, in the Integrated Center of Culture (CIC). The total prize of R$ 22,000 will be distributed among the best male dancer, female dancer and choreographer, the winners of each dance genre, the highlight of the event and the great champion. Classical ballet works, classical repertoire ballet, contemporary dance, ballroom dancing, folk dances, urban dances, jazz and tap dance, will compete in two categories: junior (dancers born between 2000 and 2004) and adult (dancers born until 1999). The subgenres are divided into male and female solo, duo and ensemble. The choreography registration is unlimited, but only one work by combination of gender, subgenre and category of each group can be approved - except in the subgenre solo, as long as it is not the same dancer. For example: a jazz/duo/junior, a jazz/duo/adult, a tap dance/ensemble/junior, a tap dance/ensemble/adult and so on. The presentations of solos and duos can not exceed three minutes and the ensembles, five minutes. Candidates must send the registration forms, pay the evaluation fee in the amount of R$ 15 per choreography and post their videos (upload) by June 15th, through the website www.premiodesterro.com.br. The list of the selected will be announced until July 4th. Only these will pay the registration fee and will send the other documents required until July 20th, by Sedex.
