The Inaugural Charleston Dance Festival 2012

Mission:

The mission of the Charleston Dance Festival is to unite local and regional dancers to promote and support the creative development of dance in the Charleston community through performance and education and by fostering a community that nurtures growth, creativity, and an appreciation for the art of dance.

Festival Breakdown:

The Charleston Dance Festival, presented by the newly established Charleston Dance Alliance and DanceFX Charleston, will be a seven day festival consisting of master class instruction, lectures, demonstrations, outdoor performance and evening performances by both professional and student dancers. Our goal is to bring the local dance community together to celebrate dance in Charleston and through out the state.

Educational out reach will be a main component of the Charleston Dance Festival through the uniting of novice and professional dancers alike and by teaming up with local dance education programs in the Charleston Country School district. This Festival will strive to offer classes and programs that will accommodate all levels of income and financial background while still maintaining the greatest level of excellence in the art of dance.
