about RADFEST

The Midwest RAD Fest is hosted and supported by Southwest Michigan's oldest professional dance company, Wellspring/Cori Terry & Dancers. The festival is a juried event at the Epic Center in Kalamazoo, MI, featuring the best in modern, post-modern, and contemporary dance from all over the country. No other festival in the region offers emerging, professional, and experimental artists the opportunity to present their work (without financial commitment), opportunities for professional development (master classes, lectures, discussion panels), and free networking events. The call for choreographic submissions goes out in late August, and the 2020 festival is March 6-8, 2020. 

RAD Fest presents live stage performances, site-specific works, a Screendance film series, master classes, workshops, a mediated discussion group, and several different networking opportunities for artists and patrons. Most visiting artists receive a travel stipend and lodging assistance, and all artists receive free promotional and media coverage. Additionally, RAD Fest offers audience development events (open rehearsals, Q & A sessions, open lectures, interactive performances).
