The Choreography Festival

Choreography by both emerging and established dancemakers takes center stage in McCallum’s popular Choreography Festival. Exciting original dances in a number of styles are performed by companies from across the nation with winners announced at the conclusion of each performance. A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented on Saturday evening and students in East Valley Dance and The Studio Projects will perform on Sunday. Highlighting dance as an art form, this event always delivers an interesting mix of work by inventive artists.
