This past year has been really hard on all of us, including the tens of thousands of dancers we serve. As a service to the community, we've put together a dynamic event with lots of content so that there's something for everyone! This year we celebrate the theme “Dance Brings Us Together” with dancers from around the world.
***Ribbon Cutting Ceremony: Kicking off the family-friendly event is a ceremony officiated by Emcee Jungle to pay homage to healthcare workers and to introduce dance celebrity Grand Marshals Lisa Lisa, H.T. Chen & Dian Dong, and Virginia Johnson. They will cut the ribbon, unleashing dance styles from ballet to breakdance, tango to tap, and Japanese to Mexican!
Dare To Dance Challenge: See the winner of the video challenge to house-bound choreographers to create a new work during this period of isolation and social distancing. Thanks to Nancy Steele of STEELE DANCE, three winners will receive cash prizes and will have their one-minute videos premiered at the festival.
Home Stage: Latina Pop Music Legend Lisa Lisa will open the stage with a live appearance and medley of her lifelong work. Bring your best moves to the participatory stage.
