2022 Sweatt Dallas Dance Festival: Moving Right Along

On November 18 and 19, Beckles Dancing Company hosted the 2022 Sweatt Dallas Dance Festival: Moving Right Along event at SDCC.

The 2-day, annual festival included master classes, youth dance showcases, a roundtable discussion, and evening performances by different dance organization in the Dallas area. The goal of the festival is to encourage collaborations between local artists and companies while supporting each other’s growth in the dance community.

The name of the festival, formerly called South Dallas Dance Festival, has been changed to honor Mary Lois Hudson Sweatt, (1939-2016), whose school is celebrating its 50 Anniversary this year. She recognized the importance of this festival and made the original motion to have it as a part of our BDC bylaws.

The 2022 Sweatt Dallas Dance Festival is produced by Beckles Dancing Company in partnership with the South Dallas Cultural Center and City of Dallas Office of Arts & Culture.
