The N.C. Dance Festival began as a weekend-long event here at UNCG designed to highlight the talents of out-of-town dancers. In the two decades since, the festival, which was founded by Dr. Jan Van Dyke (Department of Dance), has evolved into an important performance outlet for the state’s dancers to share their work with the state’s citizens.
The two performances in Greensboro were last weekend. Future performances will be held in Boone, Raleigh and Wilmington. This year’s season features work by Cara Hagan, Gaspard Louis, Karola Luttringhaus, E.E. Balcos, Jan Van Dyke, Autumn Mist Belk, Ashley Martin and Lauren Kearns.
