The annual Saint Louis University Dance Festival returns to the Xavier Hall Main Stage Theatre December 1-2, 2023. This event is sponsored by the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and will feature SLU student dance groups Phases of Motion, Elevation Irish Dance, and Sazón.
Sazón will perform on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. Sazón is the only dance team on campus that features Latin rhythms (salsa, bachata, cha-cha-cha, and more) in addition to aerial stunts (subidas) and sudden dips (caídas), oftentimes borrowing from other genres of dance like ballet, hip hop, and swing in order to create a more exhilarating experience for the audience! We want to recognize the diverse student body at SLU, increase cultural awareness, promote physical and mental wellness on campus through dance, and expose audience members to the Spanish language through international songs and lyrics!
Admission for the Dance Festival is free and open to the public. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each performance.
The Xavier Hall Main Stage is located on the ground floor of Xavier Hall on the SLU campus at 3733 West Pine Mall, one block east of Vandeventer Boulevard and one block south of Lindell Boulevard. Parking for performances at this venue is available in the Queen's Daughters Hall lot located at 3730 Lindell Blvd.
