Founded by Artistic Director Dale Andree with the support of Daniel Lewis and Miami Dance Futures, National Water Dance was created to bring attention to the power and fragility of the nation’s waterways. Dancers and musicians come from across the country to use dance as a form of social activism.

“My desire in creating National Water Dance was to inspire artists of all ages to go beyond the studio and the stage with their art, to connect with the environment and realize the power of art to bring awareness to environmental issues, particularly water,” says Andree.

The Miami performance takes place on April 16 at 4 p.m. as part of the Festival of the Arts and will feature 90 dancers and 100 singers and musicians at the Deering Estate, 16701 S.W. 72nd Ave.

Admission is free from 3:30 p.m. on. For more information, visit
