On February 29, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., The Old Globe’s Department of Arts Engagement will host a dance-off on the Globe plaza! Up to 10 local dance groups will be selected and featured. Local esteemed dance judges will select the very best performances for a cash prize ($2000 for first place, $1000 for second place, and $500 for third place), while all dancers will receive small prizes for participating.
Realizing our commitment to making theatre matter to more people, AXIS offers free cultural programs on the Globe's Copley Plaza led by local artists and craftspeople. 9.5 million visitors pass through Balboa Park each year. The Old Globe strives to engage this population as we transform our non-performance space into a participatory art venue, utilizing the Globe's unique physical location as an opportunity for connectivity and creative placemaking. AXIS is an effort to broaden our concept of audience, extending beyond regular ticket-holders and encompassing diverse, multigenerational constituencies from communities across San Diego County.
