inspireDANCE Festival

The annual 10-day festival features a multitude of guest artists in numerous dance styles, including West African,  Middle Eastern, Yoga, Jazz, Tai Chi, Capoeira, and Ballet. 

The inspireDANCE Festival grew out of a simple idea to find a way to connect student dancers with each other, with the Program of Dance and Movement and with the larger dance community in the Rochester area. With well over 1000 students involved in dance and movement groups and classes on the University of Rochester campus today, along with several other excellent local university dance programs and a cohesive community of professional dancers in the Rochester area,

inspireDANCE has grown into an opportunity to unify, develop and strengthen the dance community at large. The festival is designed to encourage you to try out as many new dance and movement forms as you desire, and to experience dance as art, expression, performance, community building, and the celebration of diverse cultures.

The festival is made possible through the generous support of the Program of Dance and Movement, the College Diversity Roundtable, and the Office of Jeffrey Runner, Dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering.
