Calling all high schools, dance studios, youth dance programs, professional & emerging dance companies and collegiate dance companies!!! Performances at San Francisco’s acclaimed COWELL THEATER! Registration is on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE!

To understand this 2 day event, we highly suggest all performers/parents/board members FIRST visit the website: www.dancerepertory.org., see photos and watch the introduction video as well as print, copy and distribute materials and guide your dancers, board members, parents and students to gain a clear perspective of the mission of this unique non-competitive event.

We celebrate 18 years as we have developed a very unique focus that requires a full, 2-day time commitment, plan full days because schedules aren't finalized until week prior to activities. The integration and attention to the process is extremely important to making this event a positive, deep and meaningful memory for all who share the stage!

This is strictly a non-competitive event, so if that is the the primary focus of your program or company, this project may not be a match. Competition is a valid and necessary component of dance training and diversity, but the VISION SERIES intentionally accepts groups of all levels of technical experience, at least for a couple of days! We believe expertise will follow from various experiences! Prior to the show, all participants give fun, spirited Peer Awards to celebrate each other in a loving way...
