Join the Driftless Dance Festival Online!

Originally scheduled for March 27-29, 2020, the Driftless Dance Festival was intended to feature 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.

We’re pleased to bring you an adapted, online version of the festival May 1-3!

Join us for virtual events with the artists of SPEAK, a collaboration of San Francisco-based Kathak dancers Rina Mehta and Rachna Nivas alongside world-renowned tap artists Michelle Dorrance and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, with musical accompaniment from leading jazz and classical Indian musicians; James Sewell Ballet, as part of the Company’s 30th retrospective; and a showcase celebrating dancers from across the Winona area.

The weekend will also feature classes and workshops from hip hop artist AJ Juarez, Ananya Dance Theatre company member and Yorchha instructor Renée Copeland, and James Sewell.
