Event Details

Austin Dance Festival presents a local, regional, and national roster of dance-makers working in the field
of modern dance, post-modern dance, contemporary dance, experimental dance, and improvisational

different concerts performed by youth dance companies. Other festival events include numerous master

On Saturday, March 23rd, two professional showcases will take place in Rollins Theatre at The Long

for everyone.
