Artists Concert

Annually, as part of our State Dance Festival, MD Council for Dance presents a professional artists' concert.  This concert provides paid performance opportunities for Maryland and surrounding area artists, as well as the opportunity for students and the community at large to see professional performance in a variety of dance forms, at a very reasonable ticket cost.  This concert is included in the full weekend Festival Registration, with additional tickets available to the community as part of the registration process, or at the event venue.


Even if you can't attend the full Festival weekend, you don't want to miss this amazing performance!!

Full Circle Dance Company

Full Circle Dance Company
Full Circle Dance Company is one of Baltimore’s premiere professional ensembles. Its award-
winning choreographers present dance that is emotionally and physically challenging and that addresses topics relevant to the community. Founded in 2000, Full Circle has developed a signature creative process, exploring in depth a single theme each year from a variety of perspectives. Choreographers with diverse backgrounds and visions are provided with dancers, space, and freedom to approach the
theme from any angle. The resulting performances give audiences a chance to view such complicated
subjects as race, religion, gender, and motherhood through different lenses. Full Circle Dance Company performs frequently throughout Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia, and has also performed by invitation in Arizona, Tennessee, New York, and Connecticut. Its work has been covered in Dance
Magazine, Pointe Magazine, Dance Studio Life, Baltimore Magazine, and the Baltimore Sun and has been featured on local television news programs and on WYPR Baltimore Public Radio.

LucidBeings Dance

LucidBeings Dance is a collaborative effort between artists Franki Graham and Jeanna Riscigno to create art which awakens the viewer to all aspects of life. Through movement, LucidBeings builds work which encourages humanity to discover the far-reaching connections between all existing things. Franki and Jeanna have a long history woven together through their mutual passion for creating meaningful, authentic and thought-provoking dances which leave you wondering, what does it mean to be alive? LucidBeings work has been selected and presented as part of multiple programs within the past year, most notably including the Maryland Choreographer’s Showcase (2018), Baltimore Dance Invitational (2018), VelocityDC Dance Festival (2017), and the Richmond Dance Festival (2017 and 2018).
