About danceXchange

Every third Tuesday of every month, the Old Town Temecula Community Theater opens its doors to dance artists who are creating original work, as a place to share their work and to bring the dance community together! Co-produced by Temecula Presents and Dance Theatre Collective of Southern California, the showcase has developed into a workspace for dance artists of all genres throughout Southern California. Dancers regularly come from Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego–not to mention the dancers of the Inland Valley, who create some of the most beautiful dance around.

Dancers wishing to present work at this monthly showcase are encouraged to contact danceXchange coordinator Lori Craig Torok at dancexchange.temecula@gmail.com.  All genres and styles of dance are welcome. Performers receive a small stipend for sharing their work.
