Dance Chico!

A Celebration of Community & Dance

March 25 – April 2, 2017

Since the beginning of time, we have told stories and celebrated life through dance. Dance is a complete art form combining movement, metaphor, and music to explore our human condition. A body in motion speaks volumes; love, loss, want, joy, hope, can be transferred from artist to audience. Local choreographers and dancers will join noted regional companies for a week of events, both fun and profound, that reveal our modern lives through dance.

Festival Pass - $50 (includes 1 Adult ticket to each event), $30 for student and youth

A FESTIVAL PASS FOR $50 allows you to enjoy all three Laxson Performances (reserved seats) and the film showing at the Pageant – a deal that will make you dance. To purchase a FESTIVAL PASS please contact the University Box Office at 530-898-6333, corner of 3rd & Chestnut Streets.
