|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until August 4, 2018

Polaris Dance Theatre’s annual outdoor Galaxy Dance Festival will return for its 8th year, and we can’t wait for you to participate! In previous years, over 2,000 people attended this much-anticipated event. Polaris Dance Theatre has created this multidisciplinary, versatile festival to celebrate the diversity of our city. Dance brings people together, and our goal is to get our community involved through accessible, affordable (free!), and thoughtful avenues of exploration. We’ll be hosting an array of local and regional companies, featuring an eclectic mix of styles and techniques! The wide array of genres, including aerial, ballet, hip hop, ballroom, belly dancing, contemporary, modern, folk, and jazz, contributes to the festive atmosphere, while offering an engaging opportunity for all. Dance lovers of all genres will be entertained!
