2022 Summer Dance Festival

The Summer Dance Festival is an annual performance put on by the studio that showcases the work of our students and teachers.

This year’s Summer Dance Festival will be July 23 and 24 at Edge Theater, 5451 N. Broadway. Tickets for the Summer Dance Festival are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the performance (if available). Tickets can be purchased at this link:


You can also purchase tickets in person at the studio with cash, check, or credit card.

Please note that there are no paper tickets — there will be a list at the door of everyone who has a pre-paid ticket. There is also no assigned seating — seating is general admission. All audience members are required to wear a mask and show proof of vaccination.

Prior to the Festival, some classes will be closed to students who are not performing. These classes are noted in MindBody as “closed class.” They are also noted on the class schedule page.
