Welcome to Nations
In 1993, the year Nations begin, the mission was to identify the rich cultural heritage of ethnic dance in our region and present these traditional art forms on a professional stage for a wide audience to enjoy. Twenty-four years later that mission remains the same.
From a brilliant tango, to a Bollywood extravaganza, Nations will showcase 32 dance companies with over 300 dancers and musicians in 2017 in honor of Nations' 24th anniversary year. The audience will again have the opportunity to travel the world in the comfort of the historic Spreckels Theatre in downtown San Diego.
Please join the excitement of the 24th anniversary of Nations, full of music, movement, and beauty from the producers of the San Diego International Fringe Festival.
