Our goal with this event is to bring dancers together who are open minded to discuss deep topics and obtain quality education in an intimate setting. We seek to create an event that provides dancers, small business owners, artists and teachers in the community together with a yearly event where they can feel at home and grow.
We desire to bring artists who have cultivated their own signature style and can help other dancers do the same.
Hafla & Dinner
