ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Two days of juried dance performances from a wide range of local dance companies along with master classes and workshops taught by world renowned instructors, are coming to Northern Virginia. It is the Virginia Dance Coalition’s (VADC) Dancefest 2018 at various George Mason University venues.

“We at the VADC strive to present the vast array of talent from different dance genres, and expose dancers to as much variety as possible,” said Marilyn York, VADC President, and Director of Dancin’ Unlimited Jazz Dance Company.

With a membership of about 40 dance companies, individual choreographers and dancers, “VADC works together to help each other,” said York. “We are not competing against each other, but rather we’re appreciating each other. Everyone has different styles of dance; even within genres. We challenge each other to reach higher levels of quality through this work, but don’t get caught up in the competitive spiral.”
