Cleveland, it’s time to grab your tap shoes and shuffle over to Tremont for the Cleveland Dance Festival. Held Nov. 5-6, the annual event at Pilgrim Church will feature classes and performances from some of the nation’s best dancers. Here
are three things to know before you dance the night away.
There’s something for everyone. Attendees will be able to see dancers from different genres ranging from contemporary to hip-hop. “We wanted to give artists from all over a platform to display their talents," says Movement Project co-artistic director Megan Gargano.
Getting involved is easy.
Whether you’re learning how to dance or just brushing up on some skills, classes will be available throughout the festival. Master classes taught by professional dancers are available throughout the weekend ($16 for a single class, $57 for four). "It’s a great way to get people out of the house, and it doesn’t matter what level of dancer you are,” says Gargano.
After spending the past 18 months trying to figure out what’s next, Gargano and the rest of the Dance Festival team are excited to provide resources to area artists. “Our goal is to give new and upcoming artists the exposure they need,” says Gargano.
