Seattle Vintage Jazz Dance is proud to present… the 3rd Annual Swing/Jazz Dance Music Video Contest! The first contest was a resounding success, and the second year was just as amazing! We hope that this year’s contest will be even better!
Have you ever watched one of those old-time soundies and thought that you’d like to be in one yourself? Too shy to dance in front of a live audience but still want to show off your stuff?
You now have a chance to let your imagination go wild and and create what might become the best swing (or jazz) dance music video of 2011! This year’s contest includes permission to use music by Casey MacGill’s Blue 4 Trio, Crytzer’s Blue Rhythm Band, and the Solomon Douglas Swingtet!*
The first place prize is a $700 cash prize and 40 free admission passes to the HepCat Productions weekly swing dance. Second prize is a $150 cash prize.
If you wish to submit an entry to the contest, please read through this web site, especially the FAQ section. The contest deadline is June 02, 2011. You may enter, or participate in, as many videos as you’d like. See contest rules for details.
Entries are to be submitted no later than 11:30PM PDT on Thursday, June 02, 2011.
Please note: you do not have to be from Seattle in order to enter!
