Dance and Celebration

Join us for our 2017 Detroit Dance City Festival Celebration!

At the very end of our festival, we will be hosting a gathering and performance to close out our three days of celebration of dance. Beginning with a VIP Sunday Dinner in the DIA’s spectacular Crystal Gallery, we will then have our international collection of dancers from as young as the dancers in our Kids Dance Camp, all the way through the professional level. This is truly a performance not to miss.
