    The Legacy Festival culminates in the Legacy Ball, a performance and party to commemorate 40 years of Peridance! Honoring two of our Legacy Award winners,* Maxine Glorsky and Eva Evdokimova, the performance celebrates Peridance as a space dedicated to artistic collaboration, education, and innovation. This program will include excerpts from PCDC repertory, a world premiere by Gregory Dolbashian, performances by Peridance's Certificate Program and the School at Peridance Youth Ensemble, and feature guest artists MOPTOP Universal, Sun Kim Dance Theatre, Jeffrey Cirio, and John Lam.

    A post-performance afterparty back at Peridance Center will include dancing and celebrating as we fundraise to pave the future of artistic innovation at Peridance.

    *Stay tuned for the rest of the awardees to be announced soon!


    The Legacy Festival will bring one week of special class programming to the community that makes Peridance a place to call home. From absolute beginner to the professional level, there's something for everyone to experience and enjoy!

    Register now to get access to a unique lineup of free community classes, special collab classes, feature classes highlighting Peridance's lineage, and so much more.

    Class packages are available for dancers to build their own experience and celebrate in a way that caters to their goals.


    Our Legacy, Our Stories is an initiative to connect Peridance's past and present communities through our new collective archive, the Legacy Project.

    The friendships and connections made here define this organization. To honor these histories, we are gathering photos, videos and memories of the studio and community! Telling the story of Peridance through the experiences of those who have given time, resources, ideas, and care, the Legacy Project will culminate in an online archive and displays throughout Peridance Center.

    By filling out this form, you are consenting to having your materials shared as a part of the collective archive, and potentially featured as a part of the Legacy Project.
