Arizona Dance Festival 2022

Desert Dance Theatre will present the Arizona Dance Festival 2022 at Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) Studio on September 23-24, 2022 at 7:30 pm.


The Arizona Dance Festival will feature 27 different dance artists, companies and dance film makers, showcasing an eclectic variety of choreography and dance performances from around the state of Arizona and out of state. 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 evening 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. The “Q & A” session will allow the audience to engage in lively conversation with the artistic directors and choreographers for insights in the creation of their dance works.
