Announcing Winona’s newest Original Festival!

The Driftless Dance Festival, presented by the Page Series March 27-29, 2020, will encompass a weekend of performance by national, regional, and local dancers as well as artist talks, master classes, workshops, and events that offer festival goers the opportunity to interact with visiting artists, develop skills, and build community.
