Lake Tahoe Dance Festival

July 7, 2023 | Member Submitted

The Lake Tahoe Dance Collective is coming to Incline Village on July 28th for the inaugural performance of the Lake Tahoe Dance Festival.  The Festival is in its 11th year, but past performances have been exclusively in Tahoe City and at Donner Lake.  On Friday, July 28th, here in Incline Village, dancers from New York City Ballet, Boston Ballet, Broadway, San Francisco’s Concept 0.4, Erick Hawkins, and others will give a sunset performance at a lakefront home! “Bountiful” hors d’oeuvres by Chef Alex Tolger (formerly of Truckee’s Dragonfly) and an open wine, beer, and local kombucha bar will round out the evening. 

Tickets are $125.  Prior to the Festival, which runs July 26th – 29th (two performances in Tahoe City, the event in Incline Village, and one in Truckee), these professional dancers will work with local students during the Lake Tahoe Dance Collective’s summer intensive program. 

Christin Hanna, a former professional ballerina, native of Tahoe City, and current resident of Homewood, co-founded the Lake Tahoe Dance Festival in 2013, with the mission of bringing world-class dance and dancers to residents of and visitors to the Tahoe region.  Christin has run the Lake Tahoe Dance Collective and its school out of Tahoe City since 2008 — and began teaching pre-ballet, Ballet 1, and Ballet 2 to students in Incline Village last year.  These students danced in the Collective’s “Tahoe Nutcracker” in mid-December at North Tahoe High School and in the year-end performance on June 9.

Tickets and sponsorship information are available at www.laketahoedancecollective.org.

The Lake Tahoe Dance Collective is actively seeking support.  It costs approximately $15,000 per performance, in rights to perform the choreography, dancers’ pro-rated travel and fees, and other expenses.
