Share this event:

Jen Bradford, founding artistic director of the Northern California Dance Conservatory and Project Launch, and Francisco Gella, founding artistic director of NUEVO School of Contemporary Dance and Colabo Youth Dance Collective, have come together to collaborate on a new youth festival. As widely respected dance educators - one from Northern California and the other from Southern California, their efforts bring together two of California's premier pre-professional programs for a full weekend of dance.

The inaugural year of the festival celebrates California's excellence in youth dance education and performance - from the San Francisco Bay Area to the City of Angels. Opening the weekend will be a matinee featuring the dancers (ages 8 - college) of NUEVO School of Contemporary Dance's pre-professional company performing solo and ensemble work from the 2012/13 season. The evening show will bring together the talented dancers from Northern California Dance Conservatory and original work premiered by Francisco Gella's newest project, Colabo Youth Dance Collective.
