Teen Choreography Festival

Watson Dance’s Teen Choreography Festival is an opportunity for choreographers aged 13-18 to have their dance performed in a theater and get feedback from professional choreographers. (Feedback is based on choreography not technique) Every style of dance and every level of dancer is encouraged to attend. Through TCF, Watson Dance strives to give a greater artistic experience and a sense of community with the choreographers and dancers (and teachers!).
