The Southwest Washington Dance Center will host the 26th annual Dance Festival Northwest, on Saturday, March 24 at 7:00 PM. Dance Festival Northwest brings dance companies from around the Pacific Northwest to the Centralia/Chehalis area. The dancers attend Master Dance Classes together as a group and then each individual company performs dance pieces that they have prepared, at a fabulous performance at Corbet Theatre in Centralia. This year you will see very diverse forms of dance performed; from contemporary and classical ballet on pointe, modern/contemporary dance, ballroom, Hip Hop and jazz.
The host company, under the direction of Danielle Brosco, is Southwest Washington Dance Ensemble from Chehalis, WA. For over 35 years, Southwest Washington Dance Ensemble has given the gift of dance to the Lewis County area. The Dance Ensemble has performed for audiences at the Lewis County Community Concert, Miss Lewis County Pageant, The Nutcracker Ballet, Northwest Wind Symphony and the Merce Cunningham Tribute. They have also danced at Dancepalooza in Seattle, Dance to Make a Difference Charity Gala, and Olympia Dance Festival. The Ensemble also tours, every spring, with a production for Elementary Schools in greater Lewis County and South Thurston County. This year’s production will be Seuss.
