"To say performing at Liberty Hall Dance Festival was a pleasure does not capture the wonders that the performers and visitors experienced during this amazing day of art and history. There was a sense of community and of art awareness and education, all done with the mutual core love of dance. I cannot wait to see where the dance festival goes from here." - 2017 performer Jai Mason
