Arizona Dance Festival 2018

Desert Dance Theatre presents the Arizona Dance Festival 2018 at the Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) on Thursday-Saturday, October 18-20, 2018.

The festival is expanding with an additional performance date and the addition of Site Specific Performances that gives dancers and audience an alternative performance experience in an outdoor performance space at the Tempe Center for the Arts (East Breezeway). The Site Specific Performances  will begin at 7:00pm. Then the On-Stage Showcases will occur at 7:30pm in the TCA Studio. Each evening will showcase different dance artists including emerging artists as well as professional companies from all genres and styles of dance from around Arizona and other surrounding states.
