If there is one thing Dance Wire loves more than anything else, it's building bridges between communities. This event builds a bridge between dance genres as well as between performers and the audience (YOU).
Food + Drink + Performances + Mingling with the artists
Each year Dance Wire chooses 12 of the most innovative and influential members of the dance community who represent various styles of dance as Ambassadors. This show will feature 9 of our Ambassadors and showcases 8 styles of dance. As they say, it takes two to tango which means your role of showing up is important too!
