It's Dance Planet's 20th Anniversary!
2016 headliners: Chris Vo & Teresa Espinosa
|Dance Planet 20 is the latest incarnation of a 20 year-old phenomenon that grew out of theDFW 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. Take some samba, mix in some mambo, jazz, Pilates, and Afro-Caribbean. Stir all that up with Afternoon Performance Showcases of dance styles from around the world, special headliner performances and Q & As each day by Broadway Star ~ Chris Vo and Hollywood Dynamo ~ Teresa Espinosa. You're sure to find something for everyone AND it's ALL free!
20 Years of Fun, Food, Family
An alphabet soup of dance styles … from African to tap,
and in between ballet, belly dance, Bharatha Naatyam, Charleston,
folklorico, hip-hop, Lindy, modern and swing.
