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. 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, a special headliner performance, and Q & A each day. You'll get a recipe for the one and only Dance Planet 19! You're sure to find 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, Charleston,
folklorico, hip-hop, Lindy, modern and swing.
