New Summer Dance Project coming to DFW! Our philosophy is to provide artistic opportunities for artists in the slower Summer months!
Wanderlust Dance Project is a summer dance project to provide opportunities for artists, to fuel the artistic process and build industry relationships.
We are committed to offering a supportive and encouraging environment so that each dancer can develop and discover their unique creative voice. Using classical and contemporary dancers ages 15-professional, and an amazing lineup of choreographers,This creative Project will culminate in an exciting public theater showing on Friday, July 22, 2016 at the historic Majestic Theatre in Dallas.
With artists in mind, we are creating a show for dancers and choreographers, to not only be rewarded creatively, but financially as well. Dance is a job, and a great one at that! Dancers should be paid for their time, hard work, and contribution of arts to our community.
For our pre-professional performers, we wanted to offer an amazing opportunity to perform, without fees to audition or participate. Our project is 100% funded by sponsors and donations.
