Join American Dance Festival for a big dance wild ride radio show mash up of summer hits that is a celebration of everything summer. Featuring all-time hits, Martha and the Vandella’s “Dancin’ in the Streets,” Janis Joplin’s “Summertime” and the classic “Wipeout!” in a sound score composed by Ken Ray Wilemon.

All of the above is set to Rock Star Choreographer Mark Dendy’s kinetic, physically explosive and always socially relevant style. The ADF commissioned work will be performed by a young company of 10 dancers handpicked by Dendy for their unique talents. The dancers will receive full scholarships for the summer as part of American Dance Festival’s longstanding mission to help dancers make the transition into the professional dance world.
