The Walla Walla Dance Festival
The festival is passionate about dance. It is about how people move, what creates movement, its expressive qualities and relationships and above all, how it comes together synergistically to create works that are transformative and entertaining, educational and moving in a way that stirs the thoughts and feelings that will want to make the audience get up and dance.
The Walla Walla Dance Festival is an engine for bringing the very best of what dance has to offer to the greater Walla Walla Valley, in all disciplines and styles. It is made to include and collaborate with other disciplines and art forms in order to bring the highest quality of professional dance in education and performance.
