Performance Showcase, Question & Answer with Dylis
Dance Planet 18 was the latest incarnation of a 18 year-old phenomenon that grew out of the DFW area and surrounding North Texas dance community. Hundreds of participants joined DCNT at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts in the Dallas Arts District for two days of exciting dance opportunities. Samba, mix in some mambo and jazz, Pilates, and Afro-Caribbean. Couple all that with a Special Appearance Hour and an afternoon Performance Showcase of dance styles from around the world. In a nutshell, this was Dance Planet 18. It had something for everyone. And it was ALL free!

18 Years of Fun, Food, Family

An alphabet soup of dance styles … 
from African to tap, and in between ballet, belly dance, Bharatha Naatyam,
folklorico, hip-hop, Lindy, modern and swing.

~ Margaret Putnam/Dance Critic

What was on the agenda for DP 18?
 Thirty different kinds of dance and fitness classes
