What Is DanceFest?
DanceFest is a unique, two-weekend experience for young dancers to take master classes and perform original choreography on one of the world’s greatest dance stages at The Palace Theatre. Master classes are offered in seven different genres taught by international faculty who teach at prestigious dance schools and universities and for dance companies throughout the US and Europe. They are directors, choreographers and performers in music videos, MTV Award shows and are models for print ads and television commercials. Many are starring in Broadway Musicals, and are performers with world-renowned ballet companies such as New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. DanceFest 2020 culminates with The Student Festival Performance featuring over 250 dancers from dance schools performing exciting choreography by dance school directors, teachers and guest choreographers.
DanceFest 2020 Participating Schools: Ballet School of Stamford, Center Stage Dance Studio, City Center Dance, Connecticut Dance Center, Conservatory of Dance, Dance Nyaad, Darien Arts Center-Dance, Greenwich Dance Studio, Magical Movements School of Dance, Monroe Dance Academy, New York Dance and The Dance Pointe.
