Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate a thriving dance community that celebrates participation, creativity, and collaboration. Rhythm Weekend provides an opportunity for dancers of all levels to meet and learn from international dance professionals that are known for their skill as dancers and teachers, as well as for the exciting contributions they are making to the global dance community.

Rhythm Weekend celebrates and encourages exploration of the rhythmic dances born of jazz history. Dancers will explore the rich history of these ever-evolving American art forms, learn and perform choreography, participate in jams and battles and build relationships with others in the community who share their passion.
