Now in its 31st year, this dance production brings emerging, pre-professional and professional dancers from all genres in dance, and all locations in the area and the US to join in a two-day display of dance and the joy of movement. Hosted by Denton City Contemporary Ballet and founded by Artistic Director, Lisa Racina-Torre, this joyous celebration brings into view the delicate the delightful, the daring and damning facets of life through art. Often the stage is open to musicians, to mime experts, the artists and vocalists.

“Over the last 30 years, the Denton City Contemporary Ballet’s COLLAGE Denton Dance Festival series has strived to provide a stage for local and surrounding dance companies. The COLLAGE of artists this festival brings to the Denton community is rich with diversity in both culture and artistry. It is my hope that our company can continue to support the Denton dance community in our shared endeavor toward art through dance.” -Lisa Racina-Torre, Artistic Director-
