Now celebrating the 24th anniversary in Houston and the 27th season since its inception in Brussels, Belgium, Dance Salad Festival promises another gathering of world-class performers. Famous in their own countries, classical, modern and contemporary dance companies/dancers share the Dance Salad Festival stage to form a mix of movement and compelling choreography.
Dance Salad Festival is a project of the Houston International Dance Coalition (a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization), and is committed to a multi-cultural presentation of diverse dance disciplines at the highest professional level. Dance Salad Festival provides a venue for local, national and international choreographers, across dance disciplines, to present their work to the Houston community in a collaborative-curated performance.
Artistically, Dance Salad performances are conceived as three carefully woven evenings of dance from well-known and emerging choreographers. All the pieces of choreography, each of the highest professional artistic quality, must stand alone while also blending into the evening as a whole. The performance event in the festival becomes several fully curated concerts that stand by themselves yet link over consecutive days through common invited companies and their works. Dance Salad is a unique idea in dance presentation: a festival within each evening from many international and national companies that would never be seen together anywhere else, an artistically rich evening of dance with each production.
