6th Annual inspireDANCE Festival
The seventh inspireDANCE festival encompassed six days of dance exhibitions, workshops, and performances, including this year's headline event featuring the contemporary company Dance Heginbotham.
The festival included over 30 dance classes and workshops and the annual B-boy/B-girl breakdance battle, which draws ferocious competition from around the region.
