Wanderlust Dance Project Wanderlust Dance Project is a summer choreographer’s show, to provide opportunities for artists, to fuel the artistic process and build industry relationships. We are committed to offering a supportive and encouraging environment so that each dancer can develop and discover their unique creative voice. This creative Project will culminate in an exciting public theater showing on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the historic Majestic Theatre in Dallas. The projects’ philosophy aims to bring together local talent, providing a creative performance opportunity to work with an exciting range of choreographers. Offering professional paid contracts as well as pre-professional apprentice contracts, the project will never charge a fee to audition or perform.
