Please submit essay text in the box below. You may type your essay directly into the text box, type it in a word processor then copy and paste into the box,
or email your essay and photo to Chevaldancewear@gmail.com. All submission types will be weighted the same.
For your essay please consider one, some, or all of the following ideas: Why did you start dancing? How has dance changed your life and your family's life, both for better and worse? Does dance help you in any other area of your life? Do you think everyone could or should study ballet, or only some people? What do ballet and other art forms contribute to communities? How would you convince some one who has never seen a ballet to go to a live performance? You may also use your own topics,
but use these as a guideline for getting started.
Your essay can be of any length, but keep in mind that you will need to say enough to make your point, but not so much that you might lose the average casual reader. Between 300 and 1,000 words would be appropriate.

Your photo should reflect your best look as a dancer. You can use a simple pose or a dramatic shot.
We are looking for photos that are clear, well composed, and expressive.
