Arizona Dance Festival 2019

Celebrating NATIONAL DANCE DAY, Desert Dance Theatre presents the Arizona Dance Festival 2019 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts (SCPA) on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm.

The Arizona Dance Festival, now in its 19th year, will showcase an eclectic variety of choreography and dance performances from Arizona, the Southwest, and beyond. This unique setting will give audiences a taste of what is happening in Arizona's dance scene. It is a perfect platform for dance companies to get exposure, promote their work, and to connect with others in the dance community. Each performance will showcase different dance artists including emerging artists as well as professional companies from all genres and styles of dance. A post-performance Q & A will be facilitated by the Arizona Dance Coalition directly after the show.

This program has been made possible, in part, through assistance from Scottsdale Arts.
