Every summer Tahoe City promotes the art and culture of dance at their three-day Lake Tahoe Dance Festival. This Lake Tahoe annual event seeks to celebrate the beauty of movement against the backdrop of Lake Tahoe’s scenery. Tahoe City welcomes companies and guest performances from around the world to exhibit their interpretations of masterpieces by the likes of George Balanchine, Lester Horton, Erick Hawkins and many more. The Opening Night Gala kicks off the event with a reception, catered meal and, of course, a performance. The event's other performances are more casual, and attendees usually bring low-back chairs or picnic blankets to sit on while watching the magic unfold on the Main Stage of the Gatekeeper’s Museum at William B. Layton Park and at West End Beach on Donner Lake. In addition to the performances, this Lake Tahoe annual event offers audience participatory demonstrations, opportunities to meet the artists, attend a question and answer session with them and more. The Lake Tahoe Dance Festival usually takes place in late July, and tickets can be purchased on the event’s website.
