WELCOME,

 

Thank you for visiting the Brighton Dance Festival website! I am proud to announce that after the 2019 BDF we were able to donate $2,100 to the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts. This brings our total donations to local arts, educational and charitable organizations to more than $36,000 since 2010! Very cool!

 

I am excited to continue planning for the 11th annual BDF to arrive in summer 2020 and cannot wait to share my passion for dance with a campus full of amazing dancers! Whether you are a returning student to the festival, or this is your first time checking things out, I invite you to take a look around our website to see what is in store for 2020. You've probably already noticed our fresh, new look as we dance our way into this new decade!

 

It has been my pleasure cultivating an atmosphere where students can feel at home and capable of anything they dream. As always, I look forward to continuing our traditions at BDF with studios full of incredible teachers, lots of summer heat and plenty of inspiration! Happy dancing to you all!

Kathy King,

Founder/Director
