How It Works

We assemble a team of artists who are passionate about connecting with the community and a team of community members who are interested in dance. Our artists review applications from dancers interested in presenting work at the festival to assure they meet our submission guidelines.

  • Our community members (community curators) are paired with one of our artists and they work together to review all viable submissions. 

  • We compile the feedback given to us by our community curators, send this info to artists, and use it to make the final programming choices.

What To Expect

  • live dance performances selected by our community curators

  • free dance classes for all ages and abilities

  •  draws for free swag from our community sponsors

  • opportunities to meet and talk with our dance artists

Most importantly, a really fun time! Our primary goal is to bring people together so expect to meet and chat with lots of new faces. We encourage questions and feedback at all times because, as the name suggests, this is Your Dance Fest!
