Who should apply?
We have a small, intimate vending room where we love to let each vendor be the primary supplier of their specialty items. Because of this, we favor smaller vendors who sell hand made, unique, or one of a kind items. Vendors who have a reputation for playing well with others, adding something different to the mix, and supporting the community are the best fit for our Elevation tribe!
Dates: Thursday April 25-Sunday April 28, 2019. Vendors are required to participate in all 4 days
The approximate and TENTATIVE! schedule is as follows:
Set up: Thursday 4/25/19 6:45-10am; first class begins at 9am.
Classes are mostly from 8am-6pm, depending upon the day.

The Vending area
The vending area is a small, clean, well-lit room that is attached to the main classroom in the American Mountaineering Center. Students taking classes at AMC will pass through the vending area to enter and exit class. There are also some vending spaces available in the hallway adjacent to the classroom and in the lobby. We accommodate under 25 vendors in our event.
After Hours info
The American Mountaineering rooms will be locked when we leave each night. We will NOT have access to the vending room after the center is closed, so do not forget any personal items. Please cover your tables when you are not open. Neither Elevation nor the American Mountaineering Center are responsible for items that are lost or stolen, do not leave your personal items or valuables unattended. We have not had any problems in the past, but the Center is open to the public, so it is not just our dance community.
Please note that vending spaces in the hallway or in the lobby may need to be moved into the main vending room before we leave for the night, depending upon what else is going on in the building. We take this into consideration when we select the vendors for those spaces.
Serious Shopper's Showcase
This year, the Serious Shopper’s Showcase will take place on Friday, and we are offering a special vending time during lunchtime when no headlining classes are currently being scheduled. This is a time when dancers can really focus on shopping and getting all those goodies that they have been saving up for!
Vendor’s have the option of contributing to the door prizes that are given away during the Serious Shopper’s Showcase by donating an item between $10-25.
The location of the shows is yet to be finalized, and may or may not take place at the AMC building. IF the show or shows take place at AMC, the vendors will be expected to be open before the show as well as during intermission.
Friday 4/26 & Saturday 4/27/19 Typical timing: doors at 7:30pm show at 8:00pm.
Please stay tuned for information regarding the hafla on Thursday evening.
Show Tickets & Performing
Elevation is unable to offer any free tickets to vendors to attend the shows. We understand that it can be challenging to purchase show tickets to see the performances and vend at the same time. For vendors who really want to watch the whole show, we recommend that you find a (non-dancer) friend to help out so you can purchase a ticket and actually enjoy the whole show!
This year you will receive a discount code to use to receive a small discount on 1 show ticket per vendor.Are you a performer? Typically our performers are required to take a minimum of 4 classes so that all performers are representing the event. Full time vendors who apply to perform will have a smaller class requirement, please inquire on the performer application if this applies to you.
Location for the vending area:
American Mountaineering Center
710 10th Street
Golden, CO 80401
