The Temecula Valley International Film and Music Festival is looking for Southern California dance crews to perform and to compete Sept. 16 and 17 throughout the Musicfest’s lineup.
It is the first time the 17th-annual event has featured a dance showcase and competition.
Musicfest Awards Gala Producer Monty Seward hopes the addition will help to draw a younger crowd to the internationally recognized event in Temecula. It also will help to create non-stop entertainment for attendees on both days.
“This is a chance to give your crew the exposure, experience and prizes that it deserves while having a great night with friends and family at an internationally acclaimed event,” Seward states in dance showcase materials.
