Emerson Spring To Dance Festival 2019 - Lee Theater

presented by Dance St. Louis and The Touhill

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “arguably the best dance buffet in the Midwest,” SPRING TO DANCE®, the region's vibrant, must-see dance extravaganza returns for its 12th year!

Presented by Dance St. Louis and the Touhill Performing Arts Center, the 12th Annual Emerson SPRING TO DANCE Festival brings together more than 30 professional dance companies from across the country and beyond for three unique, exhilarating nights of nonstop dance on Memorial Day weekend.

From ballet, modern and contemporary to tap, hip-hop, aerial and more, the vibrant festival offers something for everyone with a distinct, dynamic program each night.

“Of all the local Memorial Day weekend events, perhaps the most consistently exciting is… Spring to Dance Festival” — Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
