In celebration of our 25th Anniversary Season, we’ll be introducing a series of archival posts about the history of the NC Dance Festival. In five posts, each spanning five years, we’ll showcase some of the highlights from each year. It’ll be a great way for us to remember our past and to celebrate and look forward to our future!
Here’s a general introduction to the Dance Project, the non-profit founded by Jan Van Dyke that allowed the North Carolina Dance Festival to be born!
