Beaverton Arts Commission seeks artists for Ten Tiny Dances

Planning for Beaverton’s Ten Tiny Dances is under way, and the Beaverton Arts Commission is seeking proposals from choreographers to create and perform a dance as a part of this event slated for July 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Presented in partnership with the Beaverton Farmers Market and the Beaverton Arts and Culture Foundation, Ten Tiny Dances is a free, public event that features an array of dancers who represent modern, contemporary and traditional ethnic dance forms.

The format forces choreographers to work with creative limitation using the 4-foot-by-4-foot stage to engage the audience. “The 2013 Beaverton Ten Tiny Dances will be a great representation of Beaverton’s diversity and individuality,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “The event has received both regional and national financial support in recognition of its high level of artistic merit. It’s an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the cultures that make Beaverton great.”

To view the full Call to Artists guidelines or to apply for this event, visit The electronic submissions deadline is Friday, March 22, at 5 p.m. Ten Tiny Dances founder Mike Barber developed the concept in 2002. Barber has presented Ten Tiny Dances in a wide range of settings — from warehouse spaces to trendy restaurants.

Ten Tiny Dances has been an annual event in Beaverton since 2009. The arts commission contributes to the quality of life in Beaverton by presenting artistic and cultural events, which celebrate community values and help connect residents to their artistic and cultural heritage.

The commission presents annual events such as Last Tuesdays, the Visual Arts Showcase and Ten Tiny Dances. In addition, it coordinates public art projects, including Beaverton’s mural program.
