Thank you for joining us for our 2024 Transformation Dance Residency Festival! This dance residency program spanned across 2023 and 2024 and features students from 13 Middle and High Schools across North Texas, some of whom will be performing live at this festival! These talented young participants paired real life stories of the things they see most affecting their communities with our professional choreographers to create dance and movement pieces to reflect the challenges and champions they wish to express.
