SA Dance 2023

May 4, 5 & 6, 2023 – Carver Community Cultural Center


The mission of S.A. Dance Festival is to enrich lives through dance and share the diversity of quality dance with the community. We continue working to bring members of the dance community together to collaborate and foster relationships among artists, choreographers and educators offering a platform to exhibit their creativity and talent.

The 2023 San Antonio Dance Festival is now evolving to a three-day event, which will consist of dance Showcases, Grand Performance and our new collaboration with the Carver Community Cultural Center, a school community performance. The Showcase is designed for artists to exhibit their creativity, talent, and cultural heritage and will give dancers the opportunity to perform their artistry to a broader audience. Outstanding showcase pieces may earn the opportunity to perform in the Gala.
