Once you submit an application for a date after reading the profiles and interests of the Speed Dating participants, we will arrange a one-on-one meeting based on the matching results. This is an opportunity for in-depth network, production promotion, and information gathering in the short space of 15 minutes.
* One-on-one encounters between performing arts professionals and applications, lasting 15 minutes each.
