"AWAKENINGS & BEGINNINGS Dance Festival" - 2017 is now one entire week long of fun master classes, community building, dancer development, performance excitement, art, education, music and of course dance. JOIN us for our Opening Night Gala that presents a very exciting evening of Dance Art & Multi-Media Dance Performances in this portion of our beloved festival. For the first time we are offering Honorariums to the top two Emerging Artists in this program. They will then have an opportunity to present their work on the Main Stage at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre on January 21 for our Closing Night. This festival sells-out every year thanks to supporters like you; be sure to get your tickets on line now. Do not wait, we'd hate to turn you away.

This 7:00 pm presentation showcases professional Emerging Artists, Seasoned & Mid Career Choreographers and Dance Companies in the Los Angeles region. Support them as they present their newest and greatest works from their repertoire to a renown judging panel of professional community artists. The two top scoring pieces (one from each level) will be awarded with an honorarium, an award and an opportunity to present their work on the Main Stage at the Barnsdall Theatre for our Closing Night's Main Event
