Join us for an evening full of dance and celebration of the Erie dance community at the 11th Biennial Erie Festival of Dance! Dance films created by the Erie Dance Community will be showcased at the historic Erie Art Museum Saturday, October 2, at 7:00 pm. The Erie Dance Consortium produces the Erie Festival of Dance biennially - showcasing Erie talent and recognizing the achievements of regional dancers. The event will include the presentation of the 2021 Trailblazer Award to Nick Adams.
The Erie Festival of Dance is unique due to the rarity of such a large and diverse group of dance organizations gathering together for one performance. For the participants, the event preparations have included rehearsals, shoot days, editing time and a film showcasing all that their hard work has achieved. It is truly a dance-filled day, exposing local dancers and community members to the vast array of dance in our region.
On Saturday, October 2, 2021 the Consortium will be hosting a pre-show VIP reception. Guests will mingle with studio directors, teachers, and filmmakers. Guests will also be treated to a message from this year’s honoree Nick Adams.
VIP: 5:30-7:00 p.m.
