Description

Devoted to nurturing the work of Northern California dancers, this year marks two new highs: the debut of a record 26 world premieres—almost twice as many as in previous years—and the commission of a record four new works, including a Mexican Bicentennial Tribute created by acclaimed choreographer Zenón Barrón and featuring dancers from six local companies. In addition to these exciting performances, audiences will enjoy many companies that have never before appeared at the festival.
