March 26, 2012 - PRLog -- (SAN DIEGO) - Mission Federal ArtWalk, the largest open-air fine art festival on the West Coast, has added a brand new performing arts component to this year’s line-up called “Dance on the Edge.”  Led by The PGK Dance Project, “Dance on the Edge” operates like an event within an event, providing two full festival days of continuous dance performances by talented local and regional artists.  The site for the performances is one of five performance stages sponsored by the U/T San Diego, located at the northern edge of Mission Federal ArtWalk on Saturday, April 28 and Sunday April 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  

The growing performance line-up includes: Argentine Tango Concepts, InnerVision Dance Company, Brown Paper Bag Dance Company, The California Ballet Youth Company, Lesa G.

“Attendees will witness and experience a wonderful, qualitative display of both the variety and diversity of dance San Diego in San Diego ” said Peter Kalivas, Artistic Director of The PGK Dance Project.  “With the rising awareness to dance of many styles nationwide, it makes sense to maintain a platform like this that supports our local artists here in San Diego.  We’re seeing a growing interest in dance from audiences, and we are thankful to Mission Federal ArtWalk for providing us with this brand new venue to celebrate local talent.”

“Dance on the Edge” was inspired by The PGK Dance Project’s participation and association with the “Celebrate Dance Festival” produced by Eveoke Dance Theater which successfully took place in Balboa Park for 14 years.  With enthusiasm for the concept, it is expected that the “Dance on the Edge” program will serve as a new regional asset to the dance community.  San Diego-based, The PGK Dance Project is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning contemporary repertory dance company of its own originally founded in Munich, Germany.  The organization’s mission is to create and produce affordable, artistically accessible, available performances that promote diversity and community in entertaining ways while also educating and developing audiences for dance. The PGK Dance Project features the work of its Artistic Director Peter G. Kalivas and a variety of other choreographers renowned for their innovative, dynamic work.  

In its 28th year, Mission Federal ArtWalk continues to celebrate all original forms of art including painting, sculpture, dance, theatre and more.  The outdoor fine art festival is known as a place where locals and visitors to San Diego alike can discover their inner artists with interactive art activities and a special area for families called KidsWalk.  The festival fills approximately 17 blocks (closed off to vehicle access) in the walkable Little Italy community, located in downtown San Diego with fantastic views of the bay.
