DANCE, BUT NOT ONLY DANCE

We strive to create unity between the city's dance companies, educational institutions, individual artists, and beyond, and serves as a bridge between Detroit and other artistic communities. We encourage artists to present their work by giving them an opportunity to contribute to the cultivation of the arts in the community through platforms including performances, workshop classes, and outreach programs.
