The tenth annual Dance in the Desert Festival presents an impressive roster of local and visiting dance artists.
The Festival offers a broad spectrum of choreographic visions and approaches, from expressionism to post-modernism to neo-romanticism, and a diverse selection of genres drawing on traditions from Africa, Europe, and American original and hybrid forms, featuring companies from around the world, across the United States, neighboring states of California and Arizona, as well as Nevada's own exceptional talent.

Martina Young from Reno, Nevada; Las Vegas Contemporary Dance Theater, Westwood and Dancers, Concert Dance Company, CSN Dance Ensemble, Saving Grace, Anthony Coppola, Cathy Allen, Lindsey Setzekorn, Gail Gilbert, Rupa Modern Dance Company, and Kelly Roth & Dancers all from Las Vegas.
