Dance Planet 19 is the latest incarnation of a 19 year-old phenomenon that grew out of the DFW area and surrounding North Texas dance community. Hundreds of participants join 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 is Dance Planet 19. It has something for everyone. And it's ALL free!

19 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
