Palm Desert Choreography Festival brings brilliant dancemakers to the Valley for award opportunities and life-changing recognition at the McCallum. In this dance concert, curated especially for students, you'll experience some of our favorite dances from the 26th annual festival performed by extraordinary professional dancers as well as local students in East Valley Dance Project at Coachella Valley and Desert Mirage High Schools. An art form present at every stage of civilization; dance powerfully connects human beings through moving experiences. We dance to self-express, to celebrate, to mourn, to tell stories, to stay healthy, and because it feels good. Join us for this unique performance and be inspired by the powerful work by a number of artists who have chosen movement as their form of expression and created dynamic dances for the concert stage.
