Dance Salad Festival History & Mission

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 at the city's premiere theater complex, the Wortham Center.

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.

Dance Salad Festival has evolved into a compelling series of international concerts and community outreach programs. The Choreographers' Forum and the film of Festival highlights, "A Touring Taste of Dance Salad Festival are co-sponsored by the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. The Afternoon Student Concert enables high school students to learn more about dance and see the Opening Night dress rehearsal. The Film and Lecture program is presented in schools, libraries and other venues throughout the community all year long.
