“BETA Dance Festival was the first local artist festival I have witnessed in the valley that showcased contemporary work, while also providing an opportunity for avante-garde dance work.”

I also think it’s great that it creates another opportunity for local artists to get their work seen, which is always important because it helps to further strengthen the Arizona dance community.”
