The Lamar University Department of Theatre & Dance is thrilled to host Aimed Dance Summer Fest 2024 - 3 Weekends of Concerts, 2 Weeks of Classes, 1 Summer Dance Festival - to be held July 8 – 27 on the Lamar University campus.  

Committed to offering movement, theory, and design sessions that will take the movement artists to the next level, ADSF 24 offers two laboratory style tracks: choreography and performance. Dancers ages 9-13 may participate in the Young Dancers Workshop from July 8 – 13. Dancers aged 14+ may participate in the Pre/Professional Intensive from July 15 – 20.
