I'm in only I have question-

Can you be more specific on exactly what you would expect? This could be anything from DJ dance music to a cultural experience from long ago I guess?

I  wrote a medieval dance tune several years ago. Is modern dance music accepted? Can we enter more than once?

Hi Tim, you're in at #35. There is nothing specific expected, it can be a dance piece or not a dance piece, as long as you compose with the idea of dancing in mind or if you have an already-composed piece which you think fits the idea. It can be a DJ piece as long as it is your own original composition and not sampled from the work of others. Modern dance music is fine. You can enter up to 2 pieces. 

How exactly does one actually enter?  Does one post a piece to this thread or somewhere else?

Entries will be sent to me privately. More details on this soon -

Thanks Gav. 

I would love to try and take part!
Count me in

Hi Óskar, you're in at #36!
