Announcing Richmond Dance Festival 2021!

Dogtown is ecstatic to be back to producing LIVE dance performance. Next up in the season is Richmond Dance Festival, a festival that brings together innovative emerging and established artists from both the local community and beyond to share in two weekends of dance. This year, Richmond Dance Festival will also include a selection of dance film works. COVID has expanded the practice of so many dance artists into video and film work, and Dogtown is excited to support the proliferation of this blossoming medium.

Dogtown Dance Theatre is proud to present the 8th annual Richmond Dance Festival, June 11-12 and 18-19, 2021. The festival includes live performances, as well as screenings of dance on film. This year, Richmond Dance Festival will showcase the work of 16 choreographers and 8 film artists. This years’ live performances include modern dance, American Tribal Style belly dance, contact improvisation, African dance and Filipino dance, representing Richmond Dance Festival’s commitment to bringing diverse audiences together to enjoy the art of movement.
