Aimed Dance, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, joins forces with VIVO Ballet, an international contemporary dance company based in Rome, Italy, in an effort to further our mission and raise funds for performances presented throughout the US in 2017. The company will hit the stage on June 22nd and 24th during the Barnstorm Dance Festival presented by Dance Source Houston at the Match. VIVO Dance Contest 2017 is an online fundraising event that allows participants to showcase their talent while promoting the creation and presentation of dance worldwide.

 

How does it work?
Participants, 18 years of age and older, submit a short 1 - 2 minute solo showcasing their love for the art of dance.

Video submissions are then open to the public for voting. Each vote is worth $1.00, the participant with the most dollars donated within the 10 day voting period will be crowned the winner.
There will be two rounds of voting. The "Top 3" Finalist awarded in Round 1 will receive VIVO Ballet merchandise and featured on the VIVO Dance Contest 2017 page. The "WINNER' awarded in Round 2 will receive VIVO Ballet merchandise, featured on the VIVO Dance Contest 2017 page, and a one month scholarship to train with VIVO Ballet in Rome.
