The Lila Dance Festival is a summer dance event in Rochester, NH to showcase local professional dancers, studios, and choreographers. We bring dance closer to the community in an accessible venue for all to view dance in a wonderful outdoor performance experience. As the arts continue to grow in the seacoast and the surrounding areas Lila promotes our local artists and performers and brings dance to the Lilac City this summer.
To provide an accessible and collaborative format to foster and showcase the artistic expression of local professionals and choreographers, creating a tangible experience for aspiring students to visualize their future careers, and to engage new audiences to experience live dance performance.
LILA Dance Festival is produced by LILA Productions a 501( c)(3) nonprofit organization
