NC Dance Festival 25th Anniversary Details

Experience the energy and talent of professional dance artists from across NC with the 25th Anniversary of the NC Dance Festival. This special season will be dedicated to the late Jan Van Dyke, Festival Founder and Artistic Director until her death in July 2015.

This year, the Festival will perform at the three sites that started it all: Raleigh, Boone, and Greensboro. The season opens in Jones Auditorium at Meredith College in Raleigh on September 19, 2015 at 7:30pm, and then continues across the state, visiting Boone (October 23-24) and Greensboro (November 13-14). From quirky partnerships to intense emotion, from the merging of technology and dance to an exploration of the body as a home, the concert presents the wide variety of contemporary modern dance being created here in North Carolina.
