Description: The ARIZONA DANCE COALITION (ADC) in partnership with the ARIZONA DANCE EDUCATION ORGANIZATION (AzDEO) and in collaboration with this year’s hosts, University & Tucson High Magnet Schools, are presenting the first DANCE FESTIVAL OF SOUTHERN ARIZONA (DFOSA) October 19-20, 2013.
The dance festival will consist of
– dance classes for high school dance groups, dance students and teachers in So AZ, and the general public. The schedule and list of instructors will be out shortly. Our guest master faculty will be Anita Feldman (Hofstra U, Hempstead, NY) and Chad Michael Hall (U of California, Irvine, CA), returning to Tucson by popular demand.
– a professional performance on Saturday evening by So AZ’s dance artists and guests representing all genres and styles
– a post-performance Q & A facilitated by the ADC, and
– an adjudicated peer performance (adjudication optional) for high-school age or older dance groups on Sunday afternoon
DFOSA will give you and/or your company great exposure and it’s the perfect way to share your art with colleagues and guests from Arizona and beyond. Performers must be at least high school age.
We are now open to accept electronic submissions for the Saturday evening performance from the So Az dance community. Submissions may be in a VHS/DVD format or can be viewed online (YouTube, other). The submission deadline is August 24, Saturday, midnight. The performers will be announced on September 1, Sunday.
