2nd Annual Friendswood Dance Festival

October 1st 6:00pm | Centennial Park, Friendswood

Bringing the Arts Closer to Home

Friendswood Dance Festival is a free event due to our mission to elevate the Performing Arts in our local community.  In celebration of this mission, please partner with us in supporting Part of the Art Foundation; a local non-profit that offers scholarships to children who possess great passion for dance, but little financial power, so that they may be a part of the performing arts!  Thank you for your support!
