So Utah's Premier Dance Festival!


SAVE THE DATE: May 31- June 3, 2023

Red Rock Dance Festivalhorizontal style 3 BEST.png

The Red Rock Dance Festival, produced by St. George Dance Company, is in its 14th year of providing outstanding opportunities for choreographers, dancers, and patrons who seek excellence in dance! Located in picturesque St. George, Utah (Greater Zion), we provide an inspiring environment for dancers to exchange ideas and cultivate their gifts in the art form of dance. With so many exciting components to this festival, you can't help but emerge as a better dancer, artist, and connoisseur of dance.

 

Each year we choose an outstanding professional company to come perform, teach, and adjudicate.  This year we are excited to announce a contemporary company from Texas, Vitacca Ballet as our Artists in Residence!  

 

While primarily geared to University level and dance professionals, Red Rock has something for dancers of all ages and levels of experience. The 3 day workshop provides key, intense training and a performing opportunity for dancers at the Intermediate level and up. Advanced and professional dancers are also challenged by instructors of the highest level and will be able to learn and perform exclusive repertory pieces.

 

The opportunity to be adjudicated and present work at a professional venue draws choreographers from Massachusetts to California. This brings a wealth of perspective, voice, and experience to the festival!     

Currently the State of Utah and Utah Tech University do not have any mandatory Covid Protocols.

 Participants are welcome to wear masks as they desire.
