Situated geographically between the two largest centers of dance in the United States (New York City and Los Angeles) and in a state with a long-standing reputation for excellence in both commercial and concert dance, the New Century Dance Project is preparing to become the foremost global event of its kind. By breaking down the barriers between diverse styles and genres of dance, the inaugural festival is bringing together some of the very best young dancers to perform with and be mentored by professional dancers. Make a fully tax-deductible donation to the festival and ensure the future and growth of our mission.
The culminating event of the festival weekend brings together some of the most outstanding youth dance companies from across the United States that represent the diversity of styles making dance such a rich and beautiful art form. These young dancers will share the stage with Utah’s professional, pre-professional and collegiate companies for a one-of-a-kind evening of excellence.
In addition to guest performers, the festival will feature original choreography by Francisco Gella, Kayla Kalbfleisch, and Yusha Sorzano. All registered student participants will be cast in a work thus all will perform in the closing concert on Saturday night.
