AIM Invitational

AIM Invitational


AIM Invitational is a prestigious performance and scholarship opportunity for young dancers held in New York City. This weekend-long event will vastly expand your dancers’ horizons. We are thrilled to invite leading dance educators to submit pieces for consideration.  

Sponsored by BDC’s youth performance company, this event offers prominent surrounding area studios and individuals the chance to showcase and receive written feedback about their recital, concert, or competition pieces for an audience comprising some of today’s most distinguished dance industry professionals. The weekend will also include 1 class for each dancer from our drop-in schedule. Additionally, dancers will learn and rehearse choreography at BDC to perform at the showcase in a New York City theater.

Works will be considered through a comprehensive selection process. Applicants will be required to submit a video/clip of the performance piece(s) you wish to present. Please review the submission guidelines below.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this extraordinary weekend-long event and give your dancers the opportunity to benefit from this experience in dance education.
