Dance Repertory’s acclaimed VISION SERIES Dance Festival
The Vision Series provides educational and professional performance opportunities to an innovative cross-section of dance artists. It develops and presents the diverse visions of high school dancers, professionals, emerging choreographers, and academic instructors, regardless of individual experience or expertise. This education project expands knowledge, provides mentorship, offers support, cultivates artistic exchange and increases the exposure of modern dance as an art form to the general public. Here, artists are supported and given the framework in which to grow and flourish.
Since 1999, it has provided opportunities to over 350 choreographers and 1,650 performers from 30 California and Texas high schools and dance studios and 50 professional emerging companies and college dance programs. Over 55 professional educators, Dance Magazine and California Dance Education Association have graciously given their time, energy and expertise to the advancement of all participants This project has also provided exposure for these artists to over 5,000 audience members. Over $6,000 in scholarships have been developed and distributed to participating choreographers as support for expansion of their artistic careers. In addition, Vision Series Conventions and Workshops have given professional technical training to nearly 350 high school students. Lastly, visual art exhibits were presented by The International Children’s Art Museum and a portion of ticket sales were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Shanti Aids Project.
